A 13-year-old girl pleaded guilty to murder in the death of an UberEats driver she and another girl attempted to carjack near Nationals Park in late March.
The girl pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in juvenile court:
The girl, 13, appeared in a virtual court hearing where she pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the March 23 death of Mohammad Anwar, 66, a Pakistani immigrant and grandfather, according to a Washington, D.C. court official.
