Teen who killed classmate after prom rejection gets 25 years in prison
MILFORD, Conn.— A Connecticut teenager was sentenced Monday to 25 years in prison for fatally stabbing a classmate in a high school stairwell on the morning of their junior prom two years ago. Christopher Plaskon, 19, had pleaded no contest in March to murder charges in the death of 16-year-old Maren Sanchez. Prosecutors said Plaskon stabbed Sanchez because she turned down his prom invitation, but Plaskon's lawyers disputed that account.
