Stoke City academy player charged with girlfriend's murder
STOKE City academy player Andrew Hall has been charged with the murder of his 15-year-old girlfriend, police in Britain said.
The 18-year-old is accused of killing Megan-Leigh Peat, who died in the early hours of Saturday after she was stabbed.
Hall was arrested and was treated in hospital for injuries, and was kept under police guard until he could be interviewed.
Miss Peat was attacked at a house in Ailesbury Road in Ampthill, Bedfordshire, where it was believed she had gone to the empty house of a teenage boy.
She had spent Friday evening at pubs in Flitwick and Ampthill.
A spokesman for Bedfordshire Police said Hall, of Robin Close, Flitwick, Beds, would be held in police custody to appear at Luton Magistrates' Court tomorrow.
In the days following Miss Peat's death, her friends and family paid tribute.
In a message left with flowers at the scene, her father David said: “Megan Moosay, miss you more than words can say. You will always be in my thoughts and forever in my heart. Love you forever, Dad."
Chelsie McAneny, 16, said she had wanted to be a midwife.
She said: "Everyone loved her, she was bubbly and popular and she stuck up for everyone, even when she was down.
"She was a party girl, she loved it. You could hear her a mile away. Everyone would say she was a good friend."
The friends said Miss Peat had been in an "on and off" relationship for two years with her boyfriend.
