Student killed in apparent prom dispute

Sixteen-year-old Maren Sanchez was killed during an attack inside Jonathan Law High School in Milford, Conn., Friday morning, and authorities were investigating eyewitness reports she was stabbed by a fellow student after rejecting his invitation to the prom that night. The prom was postponed and, instead, many of her classmates gathetred at a beach Friday night—some in formal wear—to remember her.
