Generally there are 2 possible cause for the engine to stall when the clutch is depressed.
1. Bad clutch throwout bearing. Is there any abnormal noise or rough feeling ( from foot on clutch pedal) when the clutch is depressed? If yes, then the clutch throwout bearing is bad and the transmission has to be taken out to replace it.
2. Excessive side thrust of crankshaft. This is due to wear of the crankshaft or thrust key and when the clutch is depressed, the crankshaft is pushed forward causing strain on the connecting rods and idling unstability, resulting in stalling.
Other possible causes would be something is be affected by the clutch movement. Check the pedal or shift fork to see if their movement are affecting anything, especially wireharness.
Is the Check Engine Light indicating?
