Homicide

Judge to hold hearing on whether 1 of 2 preteen stabbing suspects is competent to stand trial

The mental health of one of two 12-year-old girls accused of stabbing a classmate to please a fictional character is up for discussion in a Wisconsin court.

Two doctors have filed reports saying they don't believe the girl is competent to stand trial.

But prosecutors have asked for a hearing on the issue Friday.

The girl's attorney has said he believes she is mentally ill and he wants the case moved from adult to juvenile court, where he says she can get more services.

Wisconsin law requires suspects 10 and older to be charged as adults in severe crimes.

Court documents say the 12-year-olds plotted for months to kill their former friend to win favor with Slender Man, a character in horror stories they had read online.
