(CNN) - Two 12-year-old Wisconsin girls accused of nearly stabbing a classmate to death are scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
Investigators say Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier stabbed their 12-year-old friend 19 times, after luring her into some woods.
The girls told authorities they were trying to impress a fictional character and internet meme called "Slender Man" they read about on a horror website.
The victim's family says she's recovering faster than expected and was recently released from the hospital.
The suspects are charged as adults with attempted first-degree intentional homicide.
