A footballer with a Premier League academy has been charged with the murder of a 15-year-old girl who was stabbed at a house at the weekend.
She died after being stabbed at a house in Ailesbury Road in Ampthill at around 1.30am on Saturday, Bedfordshire Police said.
A police spokeswoman said that on the direction of the Crown Prosecution Service, Hall, of Robin Close in Flitwick, Beds, had been charged with Miss Peat's murder, the Press Association reported.
She added: "He is being held in police custody overnight and is due to appear at Luton Magistrates Court tomorrow morning."
Shortly after Miss Peat's death Stoke City confirmed that Hall had been arrested and was receiving treatment in hospital for injuries.
He was under police guard until he was well enough to be interviewed.
Miss Peat, who was a pupil at Harlington Upper School in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, had gone to the house in Ailesbury Road, which belonged to a mutual friend, with an 18-year-old man whom she had spent Friday evening with at various pubs in Flitwick and Ampthill.
Police were called to reports of a woman having been fatally injured at the semi-detached house.
In the days following her death friends paid tribute to her.
Chelsie McAneny, 16, said she shared learning support lessons with Miss Peat at school.
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.
"She has been through a lot, which is not for me to go into, but she was proper strong."
The friends said Miss Peat had a boyfriend she had been with "on and off" for two years.
