A funeral's taken place for a 15 year old girl found stabbed to death at a house in Bedfordshire.
Megan Leigh-Peat (right) died on Saturday 9 June 2012 at a house in Ailesbury Road, Ampthill.
Andrew Hall, 18, of Robin Close, Flitwick, has been charged with her murder. He's a footballer with Stoke City academy. A provisional trial date has been set for 30 October 2012.
Megan's mum Nicky, from Westoning, Bedfordshire, said:
"We have been overwhelmed by the sympathy and support we have received, she was loved by everyone who knew her and words cannot say how devastated we are by what has happened.
"Our lives have been turned upside down by her death and we ask that people respect our privacy on this sad day, and beyond, as we somehow try and find a way to live without her away from the public glare. While this matter is in the hands of the police we do not wish to comment further about Megan's death."
Megan went to Harlington Upper School in Dunstable.
Nearly 5,000 of her friends have joined a Facebook page set up in her memory.
