A Regina judge will determine Wednesday if a boy — now 19 years old — will be sentenced as an adult in the January 2015 murder of Hannah Leflar.
The boy, who was 16 at the time and can’t be named as a result, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in April 2016. If it is ruled that he will be sentenced as an adult, his name will be made public. A youth sentence means his identity will never be known.

The 16 year old Leflar was stabbed in her north Regina home by the boy who had dated her for six months and became obsessed with her after the relationship ended.
Court heard how the boy planned an attack on a new boyfriend of Leflar’s, but called it off when he stopped seeing her along with how he stalked her and eventually stabbed her inside her home.
Another 16 year old, who was in the house at the time of the murder, has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and will have his sentencing hearing in the fall.
