Slender Man stabbing: Anissa Weier found mentally ill

Anissa Weier left sits in court Thursday Sept. 14 2017 in Waukesha County Court Waukesha County Wis. Prosecutors allege that Weier and her friend Morgan Geyser lured classmate Payton Leutner into a Waukesha park in May 2014 and stabbed her 19 tim

Two girls accused of stabbing a classmate 19 times believed they had to or a fantasy horror character called Slender Man could kill their families, a U.S. court has heard. All three girls were 12 years old at the time of the stabbing, three years ago.

"I'm very thankful to the jurors for taking the time to look at what was really going on with her", Maura McMahon said, her own eyes wet from crying.

But she also pleaded not guilty due to mental illness of defect, setting up the trial on her mental status.

Anissa Weier told investigators that she and co-defendant Morgan Geyser believed they had to kill their victim in "dedication" to Slender Man, a fictional horror website character.

Van Rybroek's testimony matched that of another psychologist who testified Weier and Geyser had a shared delusion about Slender Man.

The Waukesha County Circuit Court jury decision sends Anissa Weier, 15, to a state mental hospital, where she will not be able to seek a conditional release until July 2020, local media reported.

She was asked by Weier's lawyer why she did not recognize that the belief in Slender Man and his powers to kill them or their families was a delusion. She was badly injured at the time but she was alive.

Weier will now be admitted to a mental institution. The two young ladies ended up plainly fixated on Slender Man and Weier trusted the creature could read her brain and would execute her family or her on the off chance that she discussed him, McMahon guaranteed. But she said that if anyone could recover, it would be Weier.

The Slender Man is a fictional supernatural character. On a moment question that legal hearers needed to choose - whether she was criminally in charge of her activities - 10 attendants additionally voted she was most certainly not. "At 12 years old, she had no way to protect herself from (Slender Man) except for Morgan's advice and they swirled down into madness together".

One of the girl's former classmates, who was also interested in Slender Man, told the court she had discovered how to become the character's servant - by killing a friend.

Weier pleaded guilty in August to being a party to attempted second-degree intentional homicide, but claimed she wasn't responsible for her actions because she was mentally ill.

"It was a choice she needed to be held criminally responsible for", he said.

At least 10 of the 12 jurors must agree on a verdict.

Her trial is set to start in October.
