A Connecticut teenager is due in court today, after allegedly killing a classmate one week ago.

16 year old Chris Plaskon is charged in connection with the stabbing death of 16 year old Maren Sanchez at Jonathan Law High School.  Reports say Plaskon was upset because Sanchez wouldn't go to the prom with him.  The attack came on the morning of their junior prom.

This is Plaskon's first court appearance.  He was arraigned earlier this week at a medical facility where he underwent a psychiatric evaluation.

Plaskon has been charged with murder as an adult.

A wake was held yesterday for Sanchez.
