Levi Aron, the 'Butcher of Brooklyn', plead guilty today after admitting to the murder of eight-year-old Leiby Kletzky, who was abducted last July as he walked home from day camp alone for the first time.

The boy had to walk just seven blocks to get to where his parents were eagerly waiting for him, when he got lost and stopped to ask Aron for directions.

Under the deal, Aron would entered a guilty plea to murder, receiving up to life in prison, plus another 15 years for kidnapping.

Judge Neil Firetog asked Aron a series of questions during the court appearance. He admitted to kidnapping the boy, taking him to a wedding in Rockland County and then killing him.

'He fought back a little bit until [sic] eventually he stopped breathing,' Aron wrote.

'I carried the body to the front room to start by placing him on the red mattress where I cut one leg at the hip.'
