Jury: Anissa Weier mentally ill in stabbing of classmate

Anissa Weier will not go to jail after agreeing a deal with prosecutors before the trial

Defense attorneys for Slendeman stabbing suspect Anissa Weier are working to convince the jury the girl was delusional and believed in the fictional character when she and a friend stabbed a classmate in 2014.

Ten out of 12 jurors ruled Friday that Anissa Weier, 15, was mentally ill when she and Morgan Geyser, 15, stabbed their classmate, Payton Leutner, 19 times.

Weier said she had second thoughts when she and Geyser began their 300-mile walk to Slender Man's supposed mansion in Nicolet National Forest, but Geyser encouraged her to continue by saying she'd made a deal with Slender Man that would result in the deaths of their families if the girls didn't join him.

During his opening statements, Smith played portions of a police interrogation of Weier shortly after her arrest in which she described a plot to kill Leutner in order to become a proxy of Slender Man, whom she described as tall and faceless with numerous tentacles capable of killing her family in a matter of seconds.

Authorities say the two were motivated by a fictional horror character called Slender Man to stab Payton Leutner 19 times in a Waukesha park.

India calls Rohingya refugees 'threat to national security'
According to home ministry officials there were almost 40,000 Rohingya Muslims staying illegally in the country. Myanmar government does not recognise Rohingyas as their citizens.

All three girls were 12 years old when the attack took place in a Wisconsin woods in May 2014.

Anissa Weier trembled as the jury's verdict was read after a week of testimony and some 11 hours of deliberations.

Three psychologists testified that she suffered a shared delusion that she and Geyser had to kill Leutner to become Slenderman's servants and prevent the character from killing their families.

Weier's plea agreement calls for her to spend at least three years in a Psychiatric Hospital, but a judge can increase the sentence pending an investigation.

Slender Man first appeared on the internet in 2009. McMahon said before the inconsistent verdict came in Weier "was shaking so hard, she was shaking me".

But Turkey appeared unfazed, announcing on the same day that it has made a downpayment for the Russian defense system. Ankara has been angered by US support for the YPG Kurdish fighters in the battle against Islamic State in Syria.

"She will have an uphill road", McMahon said.

Geyser's trial is due to begin October 9.

A Wisconsin teenager involved in the Slender Man stabbing avoids prison time after a jury finds her mentally ill. Leutner told Fisher her mother tried to assure her it was all fiction, but she also told the detective that she still was uncertain and wanted to believe Geyser even after she stabbed her, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Leutner managed to survive the attack.

Both Weier and Geyser were originally charged with being a party to attempted first-degree intentional homicide.
