Levi Aron gets 40 years to life in murder of 8-year-old

BROOKLYN - Levi Aron has been sentenced to 40 years to life behind bars in the death of an 8-year-old boy in Brooklyn last year.

Aron kidnapped and dismembered Leiby Kletzky last year after the boy got lost while walking home from day camp in Borough Park. Kletzky had stopped to ask the 36-year-old for directions.

Earlier this month, Aron entered a guilty plea for second-degree murder and kidnapping charges, which spared him a criminal trial and the possibility of life in prison without parole.
