CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department is investigating a strange murder plot that originated behind bars.

Investigators tell NewsChannel 36, they received information that the plot involved two young female inmates who were arrested for the robbery of a Pizza Hut delivery driver in October.

Brittany Carter,16, and 17-year-old Zahra Reid are charged with armed robbery in the case.

Court documents suggest the teens planned to murder the driver in order to stop their potential trial.

“We can’t have a robbery trial if there is no victim,” one of the suspects is alleged to have said.

Through an interpreter, NewsChannel 36 spoke to the mother of the delivery driver who stated she “feels sorry for the mothers of the two girls.” The mom told NewsChannel 36, she didn’t want her identity to be revealed.

The driver works for a Pizza Hut located in Mint Hill. He was delivering to an address on Bondhaven Drive when the young suspects allegedly pulled a gun on him and tied him up, stealing his car and his money.

His family had no idea there was an alleged plot against his life.

“She couldn’t believe it, she thought it was a real bad move on their part, on top of what they already did,” said the delivery driver’s mother.

For now the teens are not facing any additional charges, but police are not finished with the investigation.
