MILFORD, Conn. — A 16-year-old girl who was a junior at Jonathan Law High School in Milford was stabbed to death inside the school Friday morning, the Hartford Courant reported.

The victim was identified as Maren Sanchez, the Courant said. The suspect, also 16, is in custody but his name was withheld because he is a minor, the Courant said.

The assault happened at 7:15 a.m. in a hallway inside the school and was witnessed by students and staff, the Courant said.

Milford Police Chief Keith Mello said he could not confirm heard rumors that Sanchez had declined an invitation to the prom from the suspect, the Courant said.

School was dismissed for the day at Jonathan Law High School after the stabbing.

I hope the media gives the murderer no publicity. It only gives others the idea to do something similar in an attempt at notoriety or recognition.

Chris Plaskon... Don't care is he is considered a minor and the police legally cannot state his name. He is 16 and old enough to understand what he did. Enough with treating 16 ear old psychotic murderers like minors.

I totally agree with FfldCt, he thought this murder out , so pay up now...He took a life of this young lady..School security ??
