A teen has been sentenced following a stalking incident that led to his classmate’s death, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. announced.

New Rochelle High School student Carl Booker, 18, was sentenced Friday, March 29 to “shock probation,” where he will be incarcerated for six months in Westchester County Jail and serve five years of probation.

Booker, as well as Dominique Slack, another individual involved in the incident, pleaded guilty to first-degree stalking, a Class D violent felony, on Dec. 14, 2018. Slack was given the same sentence in February.

The initial incident occurred on Jan. 10, 2018. Booker, Slack, another teen, a juvenile and other unnamed co-conspirators allegedly stalked the victim, 16-year-old Valaree Schwab, confronting her physically.

Police say the group assaulted Schwab on the sidewalk of North Avenue in New Rochelle, leading to serious injury.

During the assault, Schwab dropped her house keys and one of the teens picked them up.

Schwab then followed the group to the Dunkin’ Donuts at 646 North Avenue in an effort to get her keys back. She was stabbed inside the restaurant and pronounced dead later that day at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx.

Charges against Z’inah Brown, which include second-degree murder, are still pending.
