Levi Aron's Lawyer to Pursue Insanity Defense

The attorney of Levi Aron, who is accused of kidnapping and brutally murdering eight-year-old Leiby Kletzky in July, said Monday he will be pursuing an insanity defense.

Defense attorney Howard Greenberg told CNN he hopes to prove Aron is not guilty by reason of insanity, despite Aron previously being ruled fit for trial.
