WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — One of the girls charged with trying to kill a friend to please a fictitious horror character will be given limited Internet access.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that a judge will allow the 13-year-old girl to have supervised access to educational programming recommended by teachers at the West Bend juvenile facility where she’s being held.

The girl and her 12-year-old friend are accused of stabbing classmate Payton Leutner 19 times in May 2014 to gain favor with Slender Man, a character they believed could kill them. Leutner survived and is now 13.

Both defendants are charged as adults. The Associated Press isn’t naming them because the judge hasn’t decided whether they’ll be transferred to juvenile court, where proceedings are closed.
