The lawyer for the man accused of murdering 8-year-old haredi boy Leibby Kletzky in Brooklyn in July will field an insanity defense, claiming his client's confession was coerced, The New York Post reported on Monday.

"My opinion is you'll get him to admit he shot Kennedy if you spent enough time with him," Howard Greenberg said of his client Levi Aron.

Aron, 35, appeared via video conference at a hearing in Brooklyn Supreme Court on Monday.
