WAUKESHA, Wis (WSAU-Metro) A judge is ordering a mental competency hearing for one of the 12-year-old Wisconsin girls accused in the "Slender Man" stabbing. Morgan Geyser are accused of stabbing a classmate multiple times in an attempt to sacrifice her to the fictional Internet character. The judge wants a court appointed psychiatrist to determine if Geyser understands the court proceedings and is able to assist in her defense.

Two doctors have already said Geyser is incompetent to stand trial.

Geyser and classmate Anissa Weier are charged as adults in connection with the May attack, and each faces up to 60 years in prison if convicted. They're being held at a juvenile facility in West Allis after being accused of stabbing a 12-year-old classmate to pay homage to the fictional character Slenderman.
