A teenaged boy convicted of helping his friend murder 16-year-old Hannah Leflar says he wished death upon her.
Crown prosecutor Chris White spent Wednesday morning cross-examining the teen at his sentencing hearing. White pointed to discrepancies between his testimony Tuesday, and what he said in previous interviews with psychologists and others, when the admission came.
“I concede to all of your points,” the teen said. “I did wish death upon Hannah Leflar.”
The teen then said, "I can't sit here" and the court abruptly went into recess.
A judge will decide whether the teen, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in Leflar’s death last year, will be sentenced as an adult or a youth.
In July, Skylar Prockner received an adult life sentence with no chance of parole for 10 years. He had earlier pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of Leflar, who was found fatally stabbed in her Regina home in January 2015.
