 A child psychiatrist has told a Regina court he's concerned a youth who pleaded guilty to killing 16-year-old Hannah Leflar has psychopathic traits.

Dr. Brent Harold, who began seeing the youth six months after the murder, testified Wednesday at the sentencing hearing for the teen, who is now 19 but was 16 at the time of the crime.

Harold said given the teen's lack of remorse for Leflar's death and his inability to feel empathy, there is concern.

Harold said he's treated thousands of patients, and that psychopathic traits have only been a concern in four or five of them, including this young man.

He described the youth as narcissistic and arrogant, with an often inflated sense of his own importance to people, and that he often saw the world as against him.

Leflar was found stabbed to death in home in Regina in January 2015.
