One of the two teenage girls charged with killing an Uber Eats driver in a botched carjacking in Washington, DC, has pleaded guilty to felony murder, a report said.

The 15-year-old — who has not been publicly identified — entered the plea last Wednesday, WTOP News reported on Tuesday, and is set to be sentenced on June 4 for killing Mohammad Anwar, 66, in March near Nationals Park in the Southeast section of the nation’s capital.

The teen and a 13-year-old allegedly used a stun-gun to jack the Pakistani immigrant’s Honda then drove off with him still clinging to the side of his car. He was then fatally flung onto the sidewalk as the vehicle crashed and flipped over.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the older teen’s guilty plea was the result of a deal with prosecutors in the case. But other charges against her have been dropped, the report said, citing a DC Superior Court spokeswoman.

The teen and the younger suspect were originally both charged with felony murder, carjacking and armed robbery in the deadly incident.

The 13-year-old is still facing the charges, the report said. A hearing for her is set for next week.

According to a past Washington Post report, under DC law, the 13-year-old can’t be charged as an adult — even in a murder case.

In juvenile court in the district, defendants who are found “responsible” — meaning guilty — may only be jailed until the age of 21, according to the outlet.
