Suspect in murder of BK boy gets new lawyer

BROOKLYN - The man accused in the murder of 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky was given a new lawyer today.

Jennifer McCan will now replace Gerard Marrone, who stepped down as one of Levi Aron's defense attorneys last week.

Police have been at Aron's home 24 hours a day since his arrest. Residents in Kensington say the activity isn't something they are used to, but that they don't think it will tarnish the reputation of their quiet community.

The district attorney says Aron is expected back in court July 28.
