Two 12-year-old girls held on $500,000 bond in stabbing case

WAUKESHA, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) Two 12-year-old Waukesha girls are in jail under half-million-dollar bonds, after they were charged as adults yesterday in the stabbing of a 12-year-old classmate.

Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier are both charged with attempted homicide, after police said they stabbed the victim 19 times. She was hospitalized in stable condition at last word. The victim was found lying on a sidewalk last Saturday with wounds to her torso, legs, and arms. A sheriff's deputy found the alleged attackers a few hours later as they walked along Interstate-94. A knife with a five-inch blade was found in Weier's backpack.

According to prosecutors, the girls said they planned for months to kill their middle school classmate when they got together at Geyser's house for a sleepover on her birthday. Officials said the defendants wanted to pay homage to the fictional character "Slender Man," the leader of a hierarchy on a Web site Creepypasta Wiki, which is devoted to horror stories.

Defense lawyers say they'll try to move both girls into juvenile court, where they could face delinquency proceedings in anonymity. If convicted as adults, their current charges would net them up to 65 years in prison each.
