- Two girls accused of trying to kill a classmate in an attempt to please the fictional horror character Slender Man will remain in adult court for now.
Slender Man Case / Still in adult court
The 2nd District Appeals court today went along with a lower court's decision that it was reasonable to try both girls as adults.
The girls could appeal the rulings to the state Supreme Court.
The girls were 12 years old in 2014 when the stabbing happened.
Authorities say, they lured their classmate into woods in Waukesha after a birthday sleepover and repeatedly stabbed her.
The victim, who was also 12, was found along a road, bleeding from wounds that nearly killed her.
