The sentencing hearing for a Regina teen who killed a 16-year-old in 2015 continued Monday afternoon with the eyewitness account of a constable who gathered evidence from the killer's bedroom.

The officer with the Regina Police Service took photos in the boy's room the day after Hannah Leflar was stabbed a total of 10 times on Jan. 12, 2015.

According to the officer's testimony, when looking for evidence on Jan. 13 he found bloody jeans and a broken phone.

He also took photos of many weapons he found in the then-16-year-old's room.

The list of weapons included knives, samurai swords, pellet guns, a hacksaw, a bow and arrow and a baseball bat with nails on the end.

A second witness was also supposed to testify Monday afternoon but has been pushed to later in the week.

The accused, now 19, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder. He cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

If he is sentenced as a youth, he could be out of prison in less than four years; however, pre-trial custody is rarely credited for youth murder cases.

If he's sentenced as an adult, which the Crown and Leflar's family are pushing for, he would serve a life sentence in a federal penitentiary with no chance of parole for 10 years.

His name would also be made public.

The hearing continues Tuesday morning with two psychologists set to testify.
