The man who confessed to the 1979 killing of Etan Patz was indicted on Wednesday for the 6-year-old child’s kidnapping and murder, his defense lawyer said.

Some 33 years later, Hernandez, who at the time worked at a deli near the Patz home in Soho, confessed in May to luring the boy and strangling him.
