WAUKESHA (WKOW) - A jury in Waukesha County has gone back to deliberating its decision on whether Anissa Weier, 15, was mentally ill when police say she and Morgan Geyser stabbed a classmate 19 times.

Doctors say Payton Leutner almost died after she was stabbed 19 times. A supplication understanding required her to put in no less than three years in a mental doctor's facility if judged rationally sick, and 10 years in jail if not. Weier struck a deal with prosecutors in August in which she pleaded guilty to being a party to attempted second-degree intentional homicide, essentially acknowledging she committed all the elements of the offense.

Although Weier did not physically stab Leutner, in her mind she knew it had to be done, Smith told jurors.

"The potential release of an assailant that methodically planned and executed an attack in which our little girl was stabbed 19 times puts the community and our family at risk", the statement continued.

An attorney for a Wisconsin teenager who was found by a jury to have been mentally ill in the stabbing of a classmate says the teen was relieved by the verdict.

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

This came after a Waukesha County jury reached a verdict in the first Slender Man trial.

But prosecutors said she knew what she was doing was wrong. They're not taking issue with Weier having some mental illness, but say she was much more motivated by her fear of losing Geyser as a friend if she didn't go along with the plot. A judge could also order up to a 25-year commitment, she said.

Melissa Westendorf was appointed by a judge to evaluate one of the girls, Anissa Weier, now 15, after her insanity plea.

Another psychologist told jurors, Weier's delusional disorder forced her to violence.

"At the moment of this bad tragic event, that she was confused and convinced that something real was going on with this very odd character called Slender Man", he said. The stabbing victim, who Reuters has not named, survived the attack. 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. Her legal team successfully argued that she truly thought she was serving as a proxy for a supernatural creature called the "Slender Man". She found guilty to attempted the second-degree intentional homicide.
