The sentencing hearing for a 19 year old boy who has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the January 2015 stabbing death of Hannah Leflar was on the stand Tuesday.
The boy, who can’t be named, says 19 year old Skyler Procknar was like a brother to him which is why he took part in discussions with Prockner about something called “Project Zombify” which was meant to hurt a boyfriend of Leflar’s. That plan went awry when the two split up causing the plan to “fade away” according to the boy.
On the morning of the murder, the boy said he received a text from Prockner asking him to make plans with the 16-year-old Leflar to hang out at her house after school, but to make sure the door was unlocked.
When Prockner said he intended to kill his former girlfriend, he didn’t think he was serious and continued to believe that until the attack started when he said he froze in fear not knowing what would happen next.
The sentencing hearing, which continues Wednesday, is to determine if the boy will be sentenced as an adult or youth. If he is sentenced as an adult, his name will be made public.
