Clarification: Dismembered Boy story

In an Aug. 10 story about a man charged with killing and dismembering an 8-year-old boy, The Associated Press reported that a psychologist had diagnosed Levi Aron with an adjustment disorder and a personality disorder with schizoid features. The story should have made clear that he was not diagnosed with schizophrenia; his younger sister died while institutionalized with the mental disorder.
