The Crown says it will seek adult sentences if two teenaged boys are convicted in the murder of an 18-year-old high school student near Victoria.
The 16- and 18-year-old boys, who cannot be named, made their first appearance in court in Victoria yesterday charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Kimberly Proctor of Langford in March.
The boys were ordered to appear in court again July 6.
Crown prosecutor Peter Juk filed a motion seeking adult sentences for the accused, who were arrested Friday and charged with murder, unlawful confinement, sexual assault and indignity to human remains.
The police say Proctor knew both teens and they believe her killing was not random. Her burned body was found along a popular hiking trial near Victoria on March 19.
