A 14-year-old girl has been sentenced to seven years in a juvenile prison after she pleaded guilty to murdering an Uber Eats driver during a botched carjacking.
The teenage girl, who can not be named for legal reason, was caught on camera with another girl, aged 15, trying to steal 66-year-old Mohammad Anwar’s car in Washington DC, while he was delivering food on March 23.
The girls tried to drive away in his car while he clung to the driver-side door. The girls crashed the car, ultimately killing Anwar, a father-of-three and grandfather-of-four, in the process.
Both girls were subsequently charged with murder and the 14-year-old, who was 13 at the time of the incident, was handed the maximum possible sentence at a hearing on Tuesday, July 6.
The 15-year-old, who has since turned 16, was handed the same sentence in June and will be released at the age of 21.
Other charges lodged against the girls were dropped as part of their plea deals with prosecutors, reports Fox 5 DC.
