It took only 33 seconds for Christopher Plaskon to take a life that many people described as promising and inspiring when he stabbed and killed Maren Sanchez in a stairwell at Jonathan Law High School on April 25, 2014.
That 33 seconds demonstrated the violence behind the attack, State’s Attorney Kevin Lawlor said in Milford Superior Court Monday, when Plaskon was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing Maren Sanchez on the day of her junior prom.
“Thirty-three seconds he is alone in that secluded stairwell along with Miss Sanchez,” Lawlor said, noting that in that short time he managed to cut the young woman’s throat and inflict multiple stab wounds in what Lawlor described as a “vicious murder” and “barbarous act.”
