The boy who stabbed 16-year-old Hannah Leflar to death in her own home in January of 2015 will be sentenced as an adult.
A Regina judge made that ruling on Wednesday afternoon allowing for the boy’s name to be published.
Skylar Prockner, who is now 19, has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years.
Procknar and Leflar had been dating, but the relationship ended and the boy became obsessed with her even hatching a plan to attack her new boyfriend.
That plan came to an end when the boy and Leflar broke up.
When Justice Jennifer Pritchard delivered her verdict, the courtroom erupted into applause.
Hannah’s mother, Janet Leflar told reporters the day is a hollow victory.
“We’re relieved that he got the adult sentence, we can finally say Skylar Prockner murdered my daughter, which is a big victory for us, but there’s no winners today nobody won anything, she’s still gone so it’s a hollow victory but it is a victory,” Leflar said.
She also said she woke up cautiously expecting today’s outcome.
“I was cautiously hoping for it and expecting it, I didn’t see how the judge could’ve made any other decision given the circumstances and the evidence and the obvious lack of remorse, very obvious,” Leflar told reporters.
Another boy, who has already pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree murder, will have a sentencing hearing in the fall.
