The two-week sentencing hearing for the two boys accused of killing 16-year-old Hannah Leflar in January 2015, began Monday.
The two suspects now 18 and 19 were both 16 at the time of Laflar’s death, however it will be determined during the hearing whether or not the 19-year-old will be sentenced as a youth or adult on his first degree murder conviction.
The court heard from Constable, Garth Fleece of the Regina Police Service on Monday, who’s team photographed and seized evidence at the Garnet Street home where Leflar was found dead by her stepfather with multiple stab wounds.
They also photographed and seized evidence from a home outside of Regina where the 19 year-old suspect lived.
The hearing was set over until Friday after a witness scheduled for Monday told the Crown about undisclosed social media conversations with one of the suspects.
Both of the accused pleaded guilty to their charges of first and second degree murder earlier this year.
It’s also expected the Crown will aim to sentence the now 18-year-old who plead guilty to second degree murder as an adult as well.
