MILFORD - A Milford teen who allegedly stabbed a classmate to death at school pleaded not guilty today.

Christopher Plaskon, 17, allegedly killed 16-year-old Maren Sanchez at Jonathan Law High School last month on the morning of their junior prom.

Plaskon's attorney Richard Meehan waived his client's right to a probable cause hearing and decided upon a three-judge panel rather than a trial by 12 jurors. Meehan says the panel would suit his client better.

Meehan says Plaskon is currently taking several medications, including anti-anxiety and anti-psychotic drugs, but would not comment on Plaskon's current emotional state.
