Wisconsin Judge to Rule in August on Slenderman Trial Venue

A Wisconsin judge said on Wednesday he will decide in August whether one of two girls accused of stabbing a classmate 19 times to please the fictional character Slenderman will face trial in juvenile or adult court. The girls, Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, were charged as adults with attempted first-degree homicide in the May 2014 attack on a classmate in Waukesha, a suburb of Milwaukee. All three girls were 12 years old at the time. Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren heard testimony over two days on a request from Weier's attorneys to move her case to juvenile court. He said he would announce his decision on Aug. 10. A similar hearing is scheduled for Geyser in June.
