Saskatoon teen pleads guilty to manslaughter in Tie Kyaw killing
Now facing two new attempted murder charges
A Saskatoon teen charged with fatally stabbing Burmese immigrant Tie Kyaw in 2010 has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
The teen cannot be named because of his age. He'll be sentenced on August 5.
The teen's co-accused, Bobby Joe Baptiste, also pleaded guilty to manslaughter this week and was sentenced to six-and-a-half years behind bars.
Kyaw and a friend were walking home on 22nd Street with a small bag of groceries and a bottle of liquor when they were approached by Baptiste and the teen. Kyaw and his friend were stabbed several times.
They were both taken to hospital where Kyaw died a short time later. His friend was treated for stab wounds to his side, legs and arms.
The teen who pleaded guilty of manslaughter is now facing new, serious charges.
It's alleged that on April 7 he tried to kill two men at the Saskatoon jail. Court documents claim that he tried to stab them.
