FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- When police arrived at Jonathan Law High School in Milford after a fatal stabbing of a 16-year-old girl Friday, the suspect said, "I did it, just arrest me," the Hartford Courant reported

Christopher Plaskon, 16, was arraigned Tuesday at an undisclosed medical facility on a charge of murder in the stabbing death of classmate Maren Sanchez, State's Attorney Kevin Lawlor told the Courant. Plaskon, who will be prosecuted in adult court, was held on $3 million bond, the Courant said. 

Police have confirmed that they are investigating whether Sanchez rejected a prom invitation from Plaskon. 

A trust for the Sanchez family has been established, according to the funeral home. Donations may be sent to the Maren Sanchez Memorial Trust; Victoria J. Koch, trustee; 325 Reef Road, Suite 200, Fairfield, CT 06824.

@ CEO So the state acted correctly against school violence. How i might ask? Interesting as they acted correctly with murder in this state CEO? Fascinating that you feel this way when Malloy abolished the death penalty? Got it they really care what happens to you. Or who might murder you.

It is true that the new law did work in this case.. The new gun laws have made in more difficult for underage to get guns on the streets.. Thanks to Governor Malloy another sandy Hook was avoided..
YES WE CAN

Funny how can he buy a gun because he was under age, The new laws did nothing. The Georgia incident was because Fed Ex is a gun free zone you can not fight a bad guy with an olive branch. Funny all the gun haters brag about the laws they get passed and they do nothing. You would think after thousands of laws passed by the gun grabbers at least one would work but they don't. fancy that!

Thankfully due to the new gun laws he was not able to get a gun and do further damage. This is a tragedy for both families and the whole community of Milford

Yes portchestertroll Governor Malloy had the courage to pass needed gun control. I only wish he had gone further and outlawed all guns in Ct.

Who cares if she turned him down? The way this state reacted against the entire population over school violence this young man should receive NO mercy whatsoever.

The state reacted correctly against school violence. Thankfully because of the new gun laws he was not able to get a gun and kill more people.
