WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - Waukesha Police said a 12-year-old girl was fighting for her life Monday, after two of her young friends lured her into a wooded area and stabbed her 19 times.
The suspects are also 12-year-old girls. They were arrested soon after Saturday's incident, and both were due to appear in court Monday afternoon.
Police said the suspects plotted the stabbing for months. Both were reportedly interested in a Web site with stories about horror and death.
Officials said one of the victim's friends held her down, while the other stabbed her on her arms, legs, and torso. She managed to crawl out of the woods to a street where she was found by a passing bicyclist.
The victim was rushed to a hospital, where she was listed in stable condition Monday.
