Girl relieved at verdict in Slender Man case

That means she will not go to prison. The jury is made up of seven men and five women. The judge said the verdict paperwork was inconsistent due to having differing dissenting jurors on each question. He then called them back in for instructions. They claim she would have lost her only friend, Geyer, if she didn't follow through with plans to attack their classmate. If no, a mental hospital.

Prosecutors say Anissa Weier was 12 when she lured a classmate into the woods and stabbed her 19-times.

The psychologists viewed video of Weier's confession after the crime.

This argument carried the day.

"It comes down to did she have to or did she want to?" But this wasn't a had to.

Deputy District Attorney Ted Szczupakiewicz declined comment.

"Together, they drifted deeper and deeper into this belief until sucked down by the whirlpool of the web".

Volkswagen Announce Ambitions to Create Electric Versions of their Entire Portfolio

Following 11 hours of deliberation Friday, 15-year-old Anissa Weier was ordered to spend time in a mental institution instead of prison.

Geyser has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease to being a party to first-degree attempted intentional homicide.

Weier told investigators she and Geyser believed they had to kill Leutner or else Slender Man would kill them and their families.

Psychologists testified at a previous court hearing that Weier suffered from persistent depression and a delusional disorder linked to schizotypy, a diminished ability to separate reality from fantasy.

At least 10 of the 12 jurors must agree on a verdict. Her trial is scheduled for October.

It came after a week's testimony over Weier's mental state at the time she and a friend, Morgan Geyser, stabbed a classmate in what they said was an effort to please the fictional horror character known as Slender Man.

For almost a week now, 16 jurors have been learning a lot about a character most likely never heard of until this case - Slender Man.

Melissa Westendorf was appointed by a judge to evaluate one of the girls, Anissa Weier, now 15, after her insanity plea.

"I know now it's just teenagers who really like scaring people and making them believe false things", Weier told Waukesha Detective Michelle Trussoni, according to the Sentinel. She said most cases involve spouses, a parent and child, or siblings.

In spite of the fact that that first decision wasn't perused in court, safeguard lawyer McMahon said 10 of 12 hearers - the base required by law - voted Weier was rationally sick.

Prosecutors decided against calling any witnesses of their own.

"I was scared because A: I would never see my family again, and B: I had to prove I wasn't insane, that I wasn't seeing things, because even I saw Slender a few times", said Weier.

Van Rybroek, a forensic psychologist, told jurors Weier "couldn't stop herself" and helped stab Leutner even though she knew it was wrong.
