Two young Wisconsin girls were charged as adults today with attempted first-degree homicide after brutally attacking a friend over the weekend.

According to authorities, the two 12-year-old girls from Waukesha lured a third girl, also 12-years-old and who authorities say was their friend, into a wooded area on Saturday. One of the girls held the victim down while the other stabbed the victim 19 times in the torso, legs and arms. The victim was able to crawl to a road, where a bicyclist found her. She survived and is in stable condition.

Police arrested the suspects several hours later along with what is believed to be the knife used in the attack. Authorities have released information saying the suspects had planned to kill the victim for several months and were interested in a website that contained stories of death and horror. The website in reference has not been named.

This is a not-so-gentle reminder that there are a lot of messed up things on the Internet, and to please make sure you monitor the activity of your children online.
