Prosecutors have charged two 12-year-old southeastern Wisconsin girls with attempted first-degree homicide in the stabbing of another 12-year-old girl.
Authorities say the two girls lured the third into a wooded area Saturday, where one of them held her down and the other stabbed her 19 times. The victim survived the attack and is in stable condition.
The girls were charged Monday as adults.
Authorities say the suspects had planned for several months to kill the victim and were interested in a website containing stories of death and horror.
The victim was stabbed in the torso, legs and arms, but was able to crawl to a road, where a bicyclist discovered her.
Police say the suspects were arrested several hours later, and a knife believed to have been used was recovered.
