Two girls were charged with homicide and up to a 65 – year sentence. Morgan E. Geyser was allowed to have two friends over each year for her birthday, May 30th. This year Morgan and Anissa E. Weier killed their friend during their sleepover.
The two girls planned this homicide for months and executed it on her birthday night. On Monday, the two girls were charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court as adults with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, each facing up to 65 years in prison. Their victim, another 12 – year – old from Waukesha, was stabbed 19 times by either Geyser or Weier or both, according to a criminal complaint. All three attend Horning Middle School in Waukesha.
Both girls are being held on $500,000 bond. What is even more bizarre is that their attempted murder was to pay respect to a fictional character who they believed was real after reading about him on a website devoted to horror stories.
On Saturday, a bicyclist found the victim lying on the sidewalk and covered in blood, with injuries to the body. She had managed to crawl out of the woods, where the suspects had left her. She was rushed to a hospital, where she was in stable condition Monday evening, but fighting for her life.
A Waukesha County sheriff’s deputy found Geyser and Weier hours later, walking near I-94 in Waukesha. A knife with a five-inch blade was in Weier’s backpack.
