Milford, Connecticut – A high school student has been charged with murder in the stabbing death of another student. As reported by WFSB, the incident occurred at the Jonathan Law High School. Reports speculate that the attack was motivated by the victim’s refusal to be the suspect’s junior prom date; however, that had yet to be confirmed by police at the time of the report.

During the attack, 16-year-old junior Maren Sanchez, reportedly sustained severe injuries to her neck. She was found by a staff member in a stairwell shortly after 7:00 a.m. and taken to Bridgeport Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

A cousin of the victim, Edward Kovac, is quoted in the report as stating of the attack, “The unprovoked attack on Maren has, unfortunately for our family, resulted in the permanent loss of Maren Victoria Sanchez – a bright light full of hopes and dreams with her future at her fingertips.”

The suspect was reportedly identified as 16-year-old Christopher Plaskon.
