Slender Man Stabbing Suspect Ruled Incompetent to Stand Trial

www.people.com Published: July 7, 2014

One of the two girls accused of stabbing their friend 19 times was declared not competent to stand trial after being evaluated by two doctors, according to a report discussed during a hearing earlier this week.



A judge ordered an examination of whether "mental disease or defect" will be an issue in the trial of Morgan Geyser, one of two 12-year-old girls charged as an adult for attempted homicide, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Geyser and Anisa Weier, 12, are accused of stabbing their friend in a wooded area near their Waukesha, Wisconsin, home on May 31. Geyser and Weier told police they stabbed their friend in homage to Slender Man, a fictional character on the Internet.
