Chicago teenager Eliza Wasni charged with killing Uber driver

A teenage girl has been charged with murder after allegedly hacking an Uber driver to death with a stolen machete and knife in suburban Chicago. Eliza Wasni, 16, appeared in court on Wednesday, the day after Grant Nelson was found in a pool of his own blood outside an apartment building. The Uber driver was attacked minutes after he had picked Ms Wasni up from a Walmart store, prosecutors said. Ms Wasni, who has been charged as an adult, tried to flee in his blood-covered car but crashed, and continued on foot, wearing just her bra and leggings. Judge Michael Hood called the crime "Extremely violent", according to the Chicago Tribune, and ordered Ms Wasni to be held without bail.
