WAUKESHA, WI -- A slumber party stabbing in Waukesha. Prosecutors say two 12-year-old girls stabbed another girl 19-times after a sleepover. The details of this story are graphic and hard-to-believe.

Two young girls tried to kill their friend because of something they read on the Internet. The two suspects made their first court appearance Monday.

They're being charged as adults for attempted homicide.

The criminal complaint details how suspects became obsessed with horror and death websites and plotted for months to kill their so-called friend.

After the three woke up Saturday from a sleepover, the pair are accused of acting out the plan. 

"Once there one suspect held the victim down while the other suspect stabbed her 19 times in the arms, legs and torso," said Waukesha Police Chief, Russell Jack.

"I recognize the young age but it is still unbelievable I guess if you want to put it that way," said court commissioner, Thomas Pieper.

Parents of the suspect refused to comment.

The attorney for one of the suspects did offer condolences to the victim's family on their behalf.

Both remain in jail on a half million dollars cash bond, each. 

The victim is in stable condition.
