A teen girl accused in the death of an UberEats driver, who was killed during a botched carjacking attempt not far from Nationals Park in Washington D.C., has reportedly pleaded guilty to felony murder in the case.

The 15-year-old suspect, who has not been identified because she is a minor, entered the plea as part of a deal with prosecutors on May 5, a D.C. juvenile court spokeswoman told WUSA9. All other charges raised against her, including armed carjacking, have been dropped.

A 13-year-old girl also charged in the case has another hearing slated for May 19.

Both teens allegedly approached 66-year-old UberEats Driver, Mohammad Anwar, as he sat in a Honda Accord near the Navy Yard metro station the evening of March 23. He tried to fight off the girls, who at one point during the confrontation deployed a Taser in a bid to overtake the vehicle.

The Honda Accord eventually crashed a block near Nationals Park and Anwar was thrown from the vehicle. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The horrific crime was caught on camera by a witness nearby the scene.

That same day, the 13-year-old, who is from D.C., and the 15-year-old, from Fort Washington, Md., were arrested and charged with felony murder and armed carjacking, police said.
