BROOKLYN - Doctors at Manhattan's Bellevue Hospital are continuing to evaluate Levi Aron, who is accused of kidnapping, killing and dismembering 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky last week.
Aron's attorney has said that his client hears voices in his head and has suffered from hallucinations.
According to Dr. N. G. Berrill, an expert in behavioral science, the doctors and the hospital are likely only examining whether Aron is competent to stand trial.
Meanwhile, a grand jury is currently deliberating on whether to indict Aron on first-degree murder and kidnapping charges.
Aron's next court appearance is expected to be July 28.
