16-year-old girl charged with fatally stabbing Uber driver

16-year-old girl accused of hacking Uber driver to death

Lincolnwood police said Nelson told officers he had been stabbed by his female passenger. On Wednesday afternoon, a Cook County judge ruled that Wasni would be held without bail in the stabbing of the Uber driver Grant Nelson, 34, of Wilmette, Illinois. She only spoke up once, to confirm her name.

Family members could be heard sobbing at times as prosecutors read out a two-page description of the murder.

At 2:18 a.m., a second Uber driver took her from Des Plaines to a Walmart located at 3606 Touhy. It is still unclear what motivated the "unprovoked" attack, according to The Washington Post.

"Help me, help me!" I'm going to die!'

A prosecutor read out an account of the attack, saying Eliza Wasni climbed into a auto driven by 34-year-old Grant Nelson and attacked him with the knife and machete. After being stabbed several times, Nelson pulled over and ran into an apartment complex screaming for help. Chicago-area TV stations reported that Nelson's blood-splattered silver sedan remained in the intersection as police investigated his killing. Wasni jumped into the driver's seat of the vehicle and briefly fled before hitting a median.

When Lincolnwood officers arrived, they found the bloody scene and Nelson's phone open to the Uber app. She was found nearby wearing only a bra and leggings, with a trail of blood leading responding officers to the condominium lobby where Nelson lay.

Nelson pulled the auto over and escaped into a nearby building, where he started pushing buzzers and shouted that he was "going to die". "For him. Because somehow I had to let him know I know what happened to him and that I was so sorry I couldn't be there to help him", she said. He never hurt anyone. Earlier that day, Nelson had attended a family Memorial Day event.

She was found hiding near an air-conditioning unit, still clinging to the machete and knife - which she only dropped after being Tasered. He was dropping off the girl when the attack occurred, police said in a statement.

Wasni was portrayed as a calm girl who "nonchalantly" could be seen walking through Walmart with the weapons in hand before walking out without paying. The shirt had blood on it.
