WAUKESHA, Wisconsin — The attorney for a 12-year-old Wisconsin girl accused of stabbing a classmate to please the horror character Slender Man has asked that her bail be reduced and she be allowed to move to a residential treatment center.

Anthony Cotton wants his client's $500,000 bail reduced to a signature bond. He also wants her to receive treatment for schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders at a Milwaukee facility.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports a judge is expected to consider the bail modification request next Friday.

Cotton's client and a 13-year-old Waukesha girl are charged as adults with attempted first-degree intentional homicide in the stabbing of Payton Leutner.

The Associated Press isn't naming either of the girls charged in case they end up in juvenile court, where proceedings are closed to the public.
