Police confirm 16-year old stabbing victim has died

Milford police officials have confirmed that a 16-year old female student who was stabbed at Jonathan Law High School on Friday morning, April 25 has died.

Police said the victim, Maren Sanchez, was a popular student and athlete. Last year she was president of her class.
