(CNN) — A classmate allegedly slashed a 16-year-old Connecticut student to death in a school stairwell, authorities said.

Maren Sanchez was described by her family as “a bright light full of hopes and dreams.” She died Friday after being slashed in her neck, chest and face.

The alleged assailant, a 16-year-old male classmate, was removed by staff members at Jonathan Law High School in Milford, local police said.

He’s being held at a local medical facility and a murder charge is pending, officials said. He’ll be arraigned on this charge next Monday in a juvenile court in New Haven, though police note that courts will decide later whether he will be tried as an adult.

The incident began around 7 a.m. in a stairwell at the school, and was witnessed in part by at least one school staff member.
