Butcher Levi Aron Packs On The Pounds In Jail
Levi Aron, the confessed killer of 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky, appeared via video in court Friday and looked like he packed in about 50 pounds since his last hearing two months ago.
“He’s definitely not working out,” quipped a lawyer who saw his image in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
The accused child killer was sprawled in a chair at a small interview room, his gargantuan gut sticking out. He sat silently, but appeared less groggy than in previous appearances.
Aron, 36, is taking psychiatric medication, which can cause weight gain sometime. But the exact reason for his growing girth could not be determined.
He is charged with snatching the lost boy from a Borough Park, Brooklyn, street last July. He held Leiby for more than a day then smothered him and chopped up his body, according to his signed confession.
