Wisconsin girl reaches plea deal in Slender Man case

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -
One of two Wisconsin girls charged with stabbing a classmate to impress the fictitious horror character Slender Man will plead guilty in a deal that calls for her to avoid prison time.
   Fifteen-year-old Morgan Geyser will remain in a state mental hospital under an agreement announced Friday. It calls for Geyser to be evaluated by doctors who will report to a judge for a determination of how long she should remain in treatment.
   Geyser and Anissa Weier were charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide in the 2014 attack in Waukesha.
   Weier pleaded guilty to a reduced charge last month. A jury later concluded she was mentally ill at the time of the crime. She faces at least three years in a mental hospital.
   All three girls were 12 at the time.
