Slender Man Teens Will Stay In Adult Court
The two 13-year-old girls accused of stabbing a classmate to please the horror character Slender Man will remain in adult court. A Waukesha County judge made that decision Monday in the case of Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier. Lawyers for the two teens were trying to get the case transferred to juvenile court where if convicted they could only be held for five years. In May of last year the girls allegedly lured a classmate into the woods during a sleep over. The victim was stabbed 19 times, but survived the incident. They are facing attempted 1st degree intentional homicide. If they are found guilty of the charge in adult court they could be sentenced to up to 65 years in prison.
