WAUKESHA, Wisc. — Police say two 12-year-old Wisconsin girls being held on attempted homicide charges for their alleged role in the stabbing of a 12-year-old girl had an interest in death and horror stories, according to WITI.
On Saturday, the two suspects allegedly lured the victim into a wooded area where one suspect held the victim down while the other suspect stabbed the victim 19 times. The victim suffered stab wounds to her arm, legs and torso, according to WITI.
The victim crawled out of the woods where she was found by a bicyclist. She was rushed to the hospital for her injuries.
Police told WITI the two suspects had “an interest in a website which is a collection of small stories about death and horror.”
Police said it is believed that the two girls had planned to kill the victim for several months prior to this incident.
The girls are being held on charges of attempted first-degree intentional homicide.
The suspects were located a short time later.
