MILFORD, Conn. (AP) - A court filing says the suspect in the fatal stabbing of a Connecticut high school student told a police officer after the attack: "I did it. Just arrest me."

The suspect, 16-year-old Christopher Plaskon, was arraigned Tuesday at a medical facility on murder charges. He had been charged previously as a juvenile offender but is now charged as an adult.

A police affidavit says Plaskon confessed to the officer in the slaying of 16-year-old Maren Sanchez. It says several witnesses saw Plaskon discard a bloody knife after the attack.

Plaskon's attorneys say he has been hospitalized under psychiatric evaluation.

He is to be transferred to custody of the Correction Department with bond set at $3 million and is to appear in adult court Friday.
