The Calgary teen who orchestrated a deadly attack at a house party is facing a possible life sentence.

Crown prosecutor Carla MacPhail told court Wednesday she will be proceeding with a bid to have the convicted young offender handed an adult sentence for the second-degree murder of Brett Wiese.

Justice Charlene Anderson convicted the girl, who was 17 at the time, in the Jan. 12, 2013 death of Wiese at a northwest Calgary house party.

Anderson said that while the teen orchestrated the attack as revenge for an earlier altercation which followed her ejection from the party, she didn't have the murderous intent to support a first-degree murder conviction.
