A Regina judge has tossed out an appeal by the killer of 16-year-old Hannah Leflar.
20-year-old Skyler Prockner pleaded guilty to the 2015 stabbing death of the teenager in her north Regina home, and was sentenced to an adult life sentence one year ago.
Prockner, who is serving his life sentence at the Saskatchewan Penitentiary in Prince Albert, was arguing that the sentencing judge did not properly weigh evidence when deciding whether to sentence him as an adult or as a youth as the defence had urged.
The appeal court ruled the judge did not err when making the decision thus denying the appeal.
Prockner has no chance of parole for 10 years.

Leflar and Prockner had been in a relationship, but she broke it off with Prockner unable to move on.
The boy, with the help of a second boy who pleaded guilty to a second-degree murder, entered Leflar’s home on January 12, 2015 and stabbed her multiple times.
Prockner was 16 at the time of the death.
