All eyes will be on the Regina’s Court of Queen’s Bench as the trial for the second teen charged in the murder of Hannah Leflar begins Monday.
The 16-year-old was found dead in her Regina home in January 2015.
The teen, who cannot be named because of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, is charged with first-degree murder.
He committed to trial during his preliminary hearing in January 2016.
The co-accused in the case pleaded guilty earlier this year and is awaiting sentencing.
The Crown is seeking an adult sentence in that case, and if convicted, will do so in this case as well.
The two accused were arrested by police days after Leflar was found dead on Jan. 12, 2015. They have been in custody ever since.
Well-liked by friends, Leflar, a Thom Collegiate student, was described at a vigil in her honour as caring, always smiling and someone who was always there for you.
The trial is scheduled to last two weeks and many of the witnesses are likely to be teens.
