'Leiby's Law' championed by local lawmakers after brutal death

BROOKLYN - Local lawmakers are planning to announce a type of safe haven law after the brutal death of an 8-year-old in the borough.

"Leiby's Law," named after Leiby Kletzky, would provide safe havens. Certain stores and buildings would be given a city-issued logo and have employees pass background checks to ensure safety.

Police say Kletzky was walking home when Levi Aron allegedly took the boy in his car and later killed him. His remains were found in Aron?s home as well as in a Dumpster in Sunset Park, according to investigators.Police find missing BK boy's remains, arrest suspect VIDEO: Full press conference about Leibby Kletzky case
