Morgan Geyser's attorney wants to see Anissa Weyer's mental health records

WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - A lawyer for a 12-year-old girl charged in the Waukesha Slender Man stabbings wants to see the mental health records of the other defendant.

In a motion filed this week, attorney Joseph Smith Jr. said the competency test documents for 12-year-old Morgan Geyser are relevant and necessary for Anissa Weyer's defense.

Geyser has had two mental exams -- one from the state and one from the defense. Both found that Geyser was not competent to stand trial for stabbing a friend 19 times in late May, in apparent allegiance to the fictional horror character Slender Man.

Prosecutors want another exam. That request was initially approved, but was pulled back pending an August 1st hearing.

Geyser and Weyer are both charged as adults with attempted homicide. The 12-year-old victim continues to recover at home.
