LINCOLNWOOD, IL – Police have charged 16-year-old Eliza Wasni with first-degree murder in the fatal stabbing of her Uber driver, 34-year-old Grant Nelson.

After eating Memorial Day dinner with his family, Nelson decided to go make some extra cash as an Uber driver.

In the early morning hours he picked up Wasni from a Walmart where, unbeknownst to Grant, she had just stolen two knives from inside the store.

When Grant arrived at a suburban apartment building, Wasni allegedly stabbed him multiple times. Grant managed to get out of his car and scream for help as Wasni drove off in his vehicle.

Police found Grant in the lobby of the apartment complex where he told them his last rider, Wasni, had stabbed him. He was transported to the hospital where he would die from his injuries.

Wasni hadn’t gotten too far after taking off in Grant’s car, having crashed into a median and then leaving the scene on foot. Police would locate her behind a building nearby, still in possession of the knives police believe she used to stab Grant to death.

Wasni did not make a statement as she was taken into custody. She has since been charged as an adult with first-degree murder. No word on what prompted the attack. This is Lincolnwood’s first homicide since 2006.
