Connecticut Prom Day Stabbing Suspect Due Back In Court

MILFORD, Conn. (AP) -- A 17-year-old charged in the fatal stabbing of a fellow student on the day of their high school's prom is due back in court for a hearing on whether there's enough evidence to prosecute him.

Christopher Plaskon is scheduled to appear Wednesday in Milford Superior Court for the probable cause hearing. His attorney, Richard Meehan, declined to comment on whether Plaskon will go forward with the hearing.

Plaskon is charged with murder in the slaying of Maren Sanchez, a friend who was stabbed to death in April in a hallway at Jonathan Law High School in Milford.

The attack occurred hours before the school's junior prom, and police have been investigating whether it was related to Sanchez's refusal to be Plaskon's prom date.
