ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Levi Aron pleads not guilty to charges he murdered and dismembered an 8-year-old Hasidic Jewish boy, Leiby Kletzky. Aron's plea was entered by his attorney. The 35-year old maintenance supply store clerk did not speak during the brief arraignment. Kletzky was allegedly walking home from camp for the first time when he became disoriented and asked Aron for directions. Surveillance video from local stores allegedly shows the young boy getting in Aron's vehicle. Authorities have reported finding parts of Leiby's body in a dumpster and in Aaron's freezer. Kletzky's brutal murder has shattered all illusions of safety within the tight knight religious community.
