The Republican candidate for attorney general says a case involving two 12 year old girls accused of stabbing their best friend is unbelievable. Brad Schimel is the Waukesha County Disrtrict attorney. 'I think that is the word that best describes it. It is unbelievable," Schimel told AM 1170 WFDL's Between the Lines program. "Its not uncommon that I come into work and something would have happened that I never could have predicted. But in 24 years as a front line prosecutor I've never seen anything this shocking."
The girls are accused of planning the crime for months to please a mythological, fictional online creature.
According to a criminal complaint, the girls said they invited the girl to a sleepover Friday. They planned to tape her mouth shut, stab her in the neck and run away to Slenderman's mansion.
Instead, they attacked the girl in Waukesha on Saturday, handing the knife back and forth between them before one girl held the victim down and the other stabbed her 19 times. One girl told detectives she regretted it. The other said she was sorry. The victim survived and is listed in stable condition.
