A 16-year-old girl was charged as an adult with murder after allegedly stabbing an Uber driver using a knife and a machete in Lincolnwood, Illinois, earlier this week, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to reports, Eliza Wasni was denied bail and currently faces a first-degree murder charge.
Grant Nelson, 34, picked Wasni up after she had reportedly stolen a knife and machete from a Wal-Mart in Skokie, the Attorney General’s office told PEOPLE.
During the ride, Wasni allegedly attacked Nelson from the back seat of his Hyundai. When Nelson managed to pull over and run for help in a nearby building, police say Wasni drove his car and hit a median before running on foot.
"The victim runs to the lobby door and is heard banging and screaming, 'Help me! Help me! I’m going to die!'" Assistant State’s Attorney Michelle Cunningham said at a press conference.
Nelson was taken to a nearby but later died from his injuries.
Wasni was found was wearing a bra and leggings, her bloody Chicago Cubs shirt disposed of nearby, police say. The teen was carrying both weapons when cops were forced to tase her when she refused to drop them.
