Alleged thief admits gun beating at Wal-Mart

Hill

When she was confronted by a store employee in late November after being caught stealing, 23-year-old Santeri S. Hill left a Wal-Mart store and returned with a gun.

After she came back inside, she threatened to shoot the employee and struck her on the head multiple times with the handgun, according to court documents.

On Friday, Hill, of the 3700 block of Trace Way, pleaded guilty to Class C felony battery. There is no specific prison sentence outlined in court documents.

A more serious charge of robbery will be dismissed if a judge accepts the plea agreement when Hill is sentenced in early March.
