The Milford teen accused of fatally stabbing another teen at a party in Shelton appeared before a judge today. 
Raul "Lito" Valle, 17, is charged as an adult in the stabbing death of Jimmy McGrath, 17, of Shelton. Valle was 16 at the time of the crime.
Valle appeared in Milford Superior Court for the first time today since posting a $2 million bond in May
He's been under house arrest with GPS monitoring since then. He can only leave for medical and legal reasons that need to be pre-approved by probation.
Today, the judge agreed that Valle can go outside of his mother's home, without leaving the property, under the condition he must return indoors by 6 p.m. 
The judge also ordered that Valle have no internet access, adding he must turn over his cellphone to his parents.
In the event Valle needs to contact his father who lives at a separate address,  he must do so by using a landline.
Valle is charged with murder and three counts of assault.
Police say Valle, who'd been attending Saint Joseph High School, stabbed  McGrath, a Fairfield Prep student, and also stabbed three other teens. McGrath later died as a result of his injuries. 
The incident took place on May 14 at a house party on Laurel Glen Drive in Shelton.
According to Valle's arrest warrant, the stabbing happened following another fight between some St. Joe's and Shelton High students at a different party.
Valle is not allowed to have contact with the victims or their families, or anyone else who was at the party and was involved. 
Valle is due back in court on Sept. 12.
