A 16-year-old female used a stolen knife and machete to murder her Uber driver, a 34-year-old man from Wilmette, early Tuesday morning, according to a prosecutor.

Addressing the media at the Cook County courthouse in Skokie, the prosecutor recited details of the attack and murder of Grant Nelson by the teenage offender in the early hours of May 30 in Lincolnwood.

The girl, the prosecuter alleged, took an Uber to the Walmart in the 3600 block of Touhy Avenue, walked through the store, stole a knife and a machete before calling for another Uber ride.
