A 14-year-old girl who pleaded guilty to murdering an UberEats driver during a botched carjacking attempt will now serve seven years in a youth detention facility after being handed the maximum possible sentence Tuesday.
The teenager, then 13, and another girl aged 15 tried to seize 66-year-old Mohammad Anwar's car using a Taser while he was working near Nationals Park in Springfield, Virginia on March 23.

Washington DC juvenile court judge Lynn Leibovitz said the 14-year-old would be locked up until she turned 21. In early June, the older girl was also sentenced to confinement until the same age.
Prosecutors said the younger girl showed no remorse and muttered to herself when she thought no one could hear after she was arrested: 'If you gave me my f*****g phone, the jacks would have still been alive, but no, you want to put my damn phone in your pocket.'Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

The girl told the court she was sorry, but her statement was hard to hear, reported WUSA9.
A plea deal for accepting second-degree murder charges meant the other charges against her - including armed carjacking - were dropped, and she will be released when she turns 21.
The 14-year-old has also been found responsible in two other cases - including unauthorized use of a motorized vehicle - and will be sentenced in those cases later this month.
At the time of the younger girl's sentencing, the judge said the carjacking was 'terrible and devastating' and that the victim's family would never recover from the trauma.
The girls attacked Anwar while he was working with Uber Eats delivering food in Washington, DC on March 23.
The pair got into his car at the Navy Yard Metro station about 4:30pm after he agreed to give them a lift.
Anwar then drove a short distance to the streets close to Nationals Park before a struggle broke out with the two girls, one of whom was armed with a Taser.
A video of the incident shows the encounter unfolding in a minute and a half, ending with Anwar's Honda Accord on its side, the girls climbing out and a fatally injured Anwar sprawled and motionless on the sidewalk.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
