EDMONTON – A man who brutally beat an Edmonton apartment manager almost 14 years ago will remain in prison indefinitely.

Leo Teskey was first convicted in 2002 of aggravated assault and sentenced as a dangerous offender, but the Supreme Court ordered a new trial.

He has dozens of convictions including the aggravated and vicious beating of landlord Dougald Miller in 2000.

Miller was beaten and has remained in a vegetative state ever since.

Leo Teskey was again deemed a dangerous offender in 2010.

Teskey was convicted and declared a dangerous offender twice in the past 10 years after his first conviction and designation was overturned by the Supreme Court.

On Wednesday, Alberta’s Court of Appeal has dismissed Teskey’s bid to remove his dangerous offender status.
