Earlier today a 15-year-old girl was sentenced in a Washington D.C. juvenile court proceeding to remain in juvenile detention for a period of six years as her “sentence” in connection with the carjacking murder of a Pakistani immigrant and grandfather who died when the girl and one other juvenile carjacked him and killed him in their subsequent effort to get away in his car.

As the car rapidly accelerated and moved to the left to go around a vehicle stopped ahead of it, the open driver’s side door struck a light pole and violently slammed shut with Anwar’s body being crushed between the door and the vehicle. The driver lost control while making a right-hand turn at a high rate of speed, causing the car to overturn. Anwar’s body was thrown clear as the car went out of control, but he struck an iron fence along the side of the road.
