WAUKESHA, WI (WISN/CNN) - One of two 12-year-old girls accused of stabbing their friend 19 times was found mentally incompetent by a doctor, according to a court hearing Wednesday.
The judge ordered further testing and another hearing. Authorities said Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier tried to kill their 12-year-old friend in a suburban Milwaukee park to appease a fictional internet meme called Slender Man.
The girls are being tried as adults and charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide. The hearing did not determine if the case would remain in adult court or go to juvenile court.
Defense attorneys had expressed concern for the girls' ability to understand the proceedings.
