Levi Aron, the Brooklyn man who is accused of killing and dismembering 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment.

Aron was arraigned Thursday in Brooklyn. An attorney spoke for the suspect.

Aron is charged with murdering Leiby after the boy became lost while walking home from camp for the first time and asked for directions, then got into his car.

Parts of Leiby’s body were found in Aron’s refrigerator and in a trash bin nearby. Carving knives and a bloody board were found in Aron’s freezer.

Aron has been undergoing a psychiatric evaluation to determine whether he is fit for trial. He told his attorney he heard voices.
