Girl accused of stabbing friend 19 times in the name of Slender Man might escape jail time
She plead guilty but says she was mentally incompetent
This week, jurors will decide if Anissa Weier, the 15-year-old accused of stabbing her friend 19 times in the name of Slender Man, is mentally fit to stand trial.
In 2014, Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser allegedly attacked their friend, Payton Leutner to please Slender Man, a mythical creature with long, slender arms and legs. Leutner managed to survive, and crawled to a bike path where a passerby found her and called 911. They were 12 at the time.
Weier pled guilty to a charge of attempted second-degree intentional homicide in August, but will make the case this week she was blinded by "mental incompetency."
“Anissa’s broken mind caused her to lose touch with reality,” defense attorney Joseph Smith told jurors in a Wisconsin court today, arguing Weier was under "command and control" of a delusional disorder, and claiming her mind was literally "broken."
If a jury finds Anissa mentally incompetent, she'll go to a state mental hospital for three years. If the jury decides she did not suffer from a mental illness, prosecutors could recommend up to 25 years in prison.
Anissa's father, William Weier, denies incompetence on his daughter's behalf, and says he never saw anything to suggest she needed mental health care, and describing her as “a normal child.”
According to Assistant District Attorney Kevin Osborne, the initial plan was for Weier to stab Leutner, but she couldn’t do it and instead told Geyser to do it.
Geyser's trial is set to begin Oct. 14.
