NEW ROCHELLE -

The New Rochelle teen involved in the stabbing death of a classmate last year was sentenced to six months in jail and five years’ probation Thursday.

Dominique Slack, 18, pleaded guilty in December to first-degree stalking in the stabbing death of 16-year-old Valaree Schwab.

Stack was part of a group of 11 teens who confronted, assaulted and eventually attacked Schwab last January at a Dunkin' Donuts near New Rochelle High School.

Carl Booker also pleaded guilty to stalking. He is set to be sentenced next month.

Murder charges against the alleged killer, Z'Inah Brown, are still pending.

The judge sentenced Slack as an adult. There is also an order of protection against another victim who was with Valaree Schwab at the time of the deadly incident last year.
