Prom Rejection May Be Motive in School Stabbing

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Police have charged a 16-year-old boy with murder in the fatal stabbing of a fellow student inside a Connecticut high school.
Milford police said the defendant was charged Friday as a juvenile offender. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in New Haven and could later be charged as an adult.
Police also executed a search warrant at the home of the suspect, whose name has not been released because of juvenile offender laws.
Sixteen-year-old Maren Sanchez died from injuries she suffered in the attack Friday morning in a hallway of Jonathan Law High School in Milford.
Authorities recovered a knife as evidence from the crime scene.
Investigators are looking into whether a refusal of a prom invitation played a role in the attack.
