DA: Teen admits to charge in UNM attack
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A teen has reportedly admitted to luring an NMSU basketball player to the UNM campus, leading to a deadly confrontation last November.
Mya Hill was a 17-year-old UNM freshman when the confrontation happened. She was accused of luring former Aggie player Mike Peake to campus.
“I was texting him like I said, and then the boys found out, Brandon found out that I was texting him,” said Hill.
Hill reportedly agreed Monday to admit to one count of aggravated battery with great bodily harm. That’s because she knew at least one person was going to attack Peake with a baseball bat.
“All I seen was Brandon walk up to him with a gun pointed at his face, and Michael did this,” Hill said.
That eventually led to a shootout between Peake and UNM freshman Brandon Travis, who was killed.
“Nobody was supposed to die. Nobody was supposed to get shot,” said Hill.
Hill will be on probation until she’s 21 years old.
