Hyatt sentencing on hold

Family members of the girl convicted of manslaughter in the death of Ashlee Hyatt will have to wait before finding out whether she will be sentenced as a youth or as an adult.

For the second time in as many months, the matter of sentencing has been adjourned – this time until the end of February.

The judge presiding over the case has still not received a pre-sentence report, which essentially provides a picture of the accused as a person in society and can be used for determining sentencing.

Hyatt was killed on June 2, 2010 when she was stabbed at a Peachland house party.

The teenage girl convicted of the crime was found not guilty of second-degree murder late last year and cannot be named because of a publication ban.
