Two teenage girls who pleaded guilty for their roles in a carjacking that killed an Uber Eats driver have been sentenced to juvenile detention until they turn 21, a D.C. Superior Court spokesman said.

One of the girls, who was 13 at the time of the crime, appeared Tuesday in family court, where a judge sentenced her to confinement at the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services, the maximum sentence.

The judge told the girl, who is now 14, that the March 23 carjacking was “terrible and devastating,” according to NBC Washington.

The other girl, who is 15, was given the same sentence during her court appearance last month. The teens are not being named because they are minors.

Metropolitan police said the teens tried to carjack Mohammad Anwar, 66, near Nationals Park and assaulted him with a stun gun, causing the vehicle to crash. Anwar, whom his family said was an Uber Eats delivery driver, died at a hospital.
