A teenage boy from Saskatchewan who watched his friend murder a girl will learn Tuesday whether he will be sentenced as an adult, which could result in a life term.

The teen, who is now 19, was originally charged with first-degree murder in the 2015 death of Hannah Leflar, 16, of Regina, but pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Leflar was stalked and then attacked in her home by her ex-boyfriend, Skylar Prockner, on Jan. 12, 2015. The teen awaiting sentencing was a lifelong friend of Prockner's and watched as Leflar, who he was also friends with, was stabbed at least 10 times. He did nothing to stop the slaying.

Lied for 2 years

For more than two years, the teen maintained he didn't know what was going to happen when Prockner messaged him to bring a knife to school and meet him after classes were over that day.

He told the court while in the witness box that he didn't know the plan was to kill Leflar when Prockner said they were headed to her house, or when they were parked outside waiting for her to return home from school.

After a day of answering questions from his own lawyer, Crown prosecutor Chris White was able to cross-examine the teen.

On Sept. 26, the teen admitted in court that he had been lying.

After about three hours of questioning, he said that at the time of the murder he wished death upon Leflar.

The revelation caught those in the courtroom by surprise, including Schwann, who called them "surprising and blunt statements."

"I wanted to help Skylar with her murder," the teen said.

The day of the murder, the teen asked Leflar to meet him after school at her house. They had been friends but drifted apart. He told her they should be alone.

The teen went to school the day after the murder and was consoling students about Leflar's killing.

That same day, he texted his brother to brag about Leflar being dead.

The teen admitted he misled the psychologist who wrote a report on him and faked a recent self-harm attempt so he would be transferred to another unit in the youth facility where he has been since he was arrested.

White said the teen's testimony "changed the landscape" of the sentencing. He called it an "unravelling."

"He committed perjury for upwards of four hours. He lied through his teeth. He lied to everyone," White told the judge.

"He just wanted to kill, he looked forward to it," said White, adding the teen had no motive.

The teen's lawyer, Greg Wilson, argued his client's surprising revelations in court showed maturity. He said it showed remorse and empathy that he didn't want to hide his thoughts from Leflar's family any more. He said the offence committed by the teen doesn't meet the bar for an adult sentence.
