Aron's Attorneys Defend Insanity Defense
The attorneys defending accused killer Levy Aron say he was pressured to produce a written statement to police confessing to the crime.
Aron allegedly dismembered Leiby Kletzky, 8, in July. His attorneys say he is not guilty by reason of insanity.
Good Day New York spoke with Aron's defense team on Tuesday.
"This is a very simple case. He is either evil or insane. We intend to prove he is not guilty by reason of insanity. It's pretty straightforward," said Howard Greenberg.
"We maintain that it was police over-reaching. He has a simple mind. There are terms (in the statement) that he doesn't seem likely (to use,) said Jennifer McCann.
