The first of two teens who pleaded guilty to the murder of Hannah Leflar began his adult sentencing hearing Monday.
The teen boy was 16 at the time of the murder and the Crown has long argued he should be sentenced as an adult.
He pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of Leflar one year after the murder.
Day one started with Constable Garth Fleece, from the Regina Police Service identification unit, who documented evidence from the teen’s home.
Fleece seized bloodied clothes and a cracked cell phone that appeared to have blood on it.
Photographic evidence from the teen’s bedroom revealed knives, samurai swords, pellet guns and a baseball bat with nails embedded in the end.
Over the course of the next two weeks, Justice Jennifer Pritchard will hear evidence from a psychologist and a psychiatrist, as well as those working with the teen at the youth facility where he has remained in custody.
It will be the first glimpse into the mindset of this teen killer as the agreed statement of facts has been sealed by the court.
If sentenced as an adult the teen will be jailed for the mandatory life without parole eligibility for 25 years.
As a youth, he would be out of jail sooner, even within a matter of months.
The second teen pleaded guilty to second-degree murder back in February. He will face an adult sentencing hearing later this year.
Leflar was found stabbed to death in her north Regina home in January 2015.
