A Saskatoon judge is expected to decide Tuesday afternoon whether to sentence a teen as a youth or an adult for killing an infant boy in 2016.
Nikosis Cantre was six-weeks old when he was found beaten and bloodied in his playpen on July 3, 2016.
A girl who is now 18 years old pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in his death.
During her sentencing hearing in December, court heard the girl beat the baby in a rage.
The infant’s family says they took in the teen after she was found wandering on the streets.
The teen, who can’t be identified because she was 16 at the time of crime, escaped from Saskatoon’s Kilburn Hall Youth Centre in the days before Cantre’s death.
She was sentenced as a youth for the charge of escaping lawful custody. A judge imposed a penalty of 120 days custody.
Tuesday’s hearing at Saskatoon Provincial Court is scheduled for 1 p.m.
