The two Waukesha girls charged in the 2014 Slender Man stabbing were back in court Monday.

Attorneys for Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, both 15, have asked that juries for their separate trials on charges of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, scheduled for the fall, be sequestered to prevent any chance of outside information influencing the trials.

Waukesha County Circuit Judge Michael Bohren, who earlier denied requests to move the case out of Waukesha County, may rule later his week. Geyser and Weier were 12 when they were charged as adults with trying to kill their sixth-grade classmate.

The girls told police they were trying to appease Slender Man, an internet boogeyman character.
