Wisconsin judge to decide if Slenderman case moves forward

(Reuters) - A Wisconsin judge said on Tuesday he will rule in March whether prosecutors have enough evidence to put on trial two girls accused of stabbing their classmate 19 times to please Slenderman, a fictional Internet character.

Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, who were both 12 at the time, were charged as adults with attempted first-degree homicide in an attack on their classmate in the Milwaukee suburb of Waukesha.

The girls are accused of luring their 12-year-old friend into the woods the morning after a sleepover and stabbing her 19 times to impress Slenderman, a tall online bogeyman, according to authorities.

Attorneys for the girls put on witnesses on Tuesday to support their argument that the pair feared Slenderman's wrath as a two-day preliminary hearing wrapped up in Waukesha County Circuit Court before Judge Michael Bohren.
