A 16-year-old girl allegedly hacked to death her Uber driver with a stolen machete and knife.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Uber driver Grant Nelson, 34, had picked up 16-year-old Eliza Wasni on Tuesday a few blocks from a Walmart. As ABC 7 reports, Nelson was Eliza Wasni's third Uber driver of the day, picking her up after her alleged shoplifting spree.

Eliza Wasni "nonchalantly" walked out of a supermarket with the blades before climbing into 34-year-old Grant Nelson's auto, which she had hailed in the early hours of Tuesday morning, it is claimed. Police then arrested Wasni close to where Nelson was found.

Nelson was able to pull the auto over in front of a condo community and exited the vehicle, shouting, "Help me!" They say Nelson told them he was a driver for the ride-sharing service Uber and that his passenger stabbed him.

According to prosecutors at the hearing on Wednesday, the alleged attack began after 34-year-old Nelson began the route; possibly two minutes into the drive, the report alleges that Eliza attacked him from where she sat in the back of the auto.

According to prosecutors, Wasni was seen walking through Walmart around 3 a.m. Tuesday before walking outside without paying for a machete or knife she was carrying. She had two weapons that authorities believe were used in the fatal attack, according to police.

He managed to escape, but died later in hospital after undergoing surgery.

Eliza Wasni has been charged with first-degree murder as an adult in the death of Uber driver Grant Nelson, CBS Chicago reported.

The suspect was hiding behind a nearby building. Judge Michael Hood ordered her to be held without bail and called the crime "extremely violent".

"I want people to know Grant was a good person", said his sister, Alex Nelson.

Outside the courtroom, Nelson's brother, Todd Nelson, called him "the most gentle, kind person". Wasni's Instagram page has been taken down while her Twitter page does not offer much information other than her location in Chicago.

'Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with his family and loved ones during this incredibly hard time'. "He didn't deserve this fate".

"Her case manager told me she shouldn't have even been allowed to enroll at Taft, and hearing about this, I guess she was right", Grishaber said in a phone interview. He was not a cruel person.
