Sentencing postponed for teen involved in stabbing death

Posted: Updated:
NEW ROCHELLE -

Sentencing for a teenage who pleaded guilty for her role in the death of a New Rochelle High School student has been postponed.

News 12 has learned that a routine delay in the legal paperwork at Westchester County Court has delayed the sentencing of Dominique Slack and is now scheduled for the Feb. 14.

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

Slack was part of a group of teens who attacked Schwab at a Dunkin’ Donuts near New Rochelle High School in January 2018.
According to prosecutors, the attack on Schwab began on North Avenue near a Subway restaurant. Schwab was knocked to the ground and dropped her house keys. Someone in the group took them and when Schwab tried to get them back, she was stabbed to death.

Z'inah Brown, 18, is accused of stabbing Valerie Schwab and is charged with her murder.
Carl Booker, 18, has also pleaded guilty to first-degree stalking in the case. He is scheduled to be sentenced later this month.
