A girl aged 14years has been convicted to seven years in a juvenile prison after she alleged guilty of murdering an Uber Eats driver during a botched carjacking.
The teenage girl, name withheld, was found on camera with another girl, aged 15, trying to steal 66-year-old Mohammad Anwar’s car in Washington DC while delivering food on March 23.
The driver who clung to the driver-side door as the girls tried to drive away with the car died when the girls crashed the car. Mr Anwar was the father of three and grandfather of four.
Both girls were afterwards charged with murder. On Tuesday, July 6, at a hearing, the 14-year-old, who was 13 at the time of the incident, was given the maximum feasible sentence.
The 15-year-old, who has since turned 16, was handed the same sentence in June and will be released at 21.
Other charges lodged on the girls were dropped as part of their plea deals with prosecutors, reports Fox 5 DC.
