(Scroll down for video) Two young girls were arrested on charges of attempted murder after allegedly stabbing their classmate because a fictional character told them to do so, police in Wisconsin said.
The two 12-year-old girls of Waukesha County, were arrested after repeatedly stabbing 12-year-old Peyton Leutner.
Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier told investigators that they were just pleasing the fictional character Slender Man. A court was shown a mutilated Barbie doll, whose hair and limbs were cut and satanic markings were scrawled on its chest.
According to the police investigation, the two girls lured their friend to a park, where they stabbed her 19 times. Leutner barely survived the attack and one stab wound nearly pierced her heart.
The two girls told investigators that they had been planning to kill their friend. The girls were found near the Nicolet National Forest, where they thought that they were going to join Slender Man as they had killed their friend.
The two girls are facing charges of attempted murder. If found guilty, they face up to 65 years in prison.
