In a July 2 court hearing for the Slender Man Stabbing in Wisconsin, the results of Morgan Geyser’s mental competency evaluation were revealed.
Morgan Geyser, 12, has been in police custody since she and Anissa Weier, also 12, allegedly attacked and stabbed one of their classmates 19 times. After she was charged as an adult by the state of Wisconsin, a competency evaluation of Morgan was ordered by the court. On July 2, the results of Morgan’s evaluation by 2 different doctors were revealed during a court hearing.
Morgan Geyser: Slender Man Stabber’s Mental Evaluation Results Revealed
Now, the results of that evaluation have been revealed during a July 2 court hearing.
Morgan has been found “mentally incompetent” to stand trial by not one, but two doctors, reports the Daily Mail. However, the reports from each doctor — one hired by the state of Wisconsin, and one by Morgan’s defense team — will not be made public at this time.
Morgan will now be tested for a mental disease or defect, and if one is found her team can plead insanity on her behalf. It is unclear whether or not Morgan would remain in police custody or be transferred to a more appropriate facility.
Both Morgan and Anissa were charged as adults with first-degree murder in their alleged attempt to murder their friend. If found guilty and convicted, they face up 65 years in prison.
As the results were read during the hearing, Morgan reportedly appeared “emotionless” and braided her hair until it was over. Sadly, her devastated father wept throughout the hearing with his head in his hands.
Slender Man Victim Is Doing Well, Still Recovering
While these court hearings are taking place, the still unidentified stabbing victim is doing very well in her recovery.
The girl, also 12, was allegedly stabbed 19 times by Morgan and Anissa in a wooded area in their neighborhood. Her family has been posting updates on their official Facebook page, Hearts for Healing.
“Our family fully supports the District Attorney’s Office in their prosecution of this case. However, our daughter and our entire family continue to focus on both her physical and emotional healing. She continues to amaze us in her ability to persevere and move forward – taking one day at a time,” the family wrote on July 2.
