Angie Geyser, mother of Slender Man stabber Morgan Geyser, fears for her daughter's fate ahead of her trial.

Morgan and Anissa Weier are currently in prison awaiting trial for the 2014 stabbing of their friend, Peyton Leutner, allegedly committed in an effort to appease the desires of a mythical demon named Slender Man. All three girls were 12 years old at the time, and the alleged culprits will be tried as adults.

"I was shocked to learn 12-year-olds could be charged as adults," Angie told the Journal Sentinel. "Some of the comments on stories say 'Adult crime, adult time.' That's BS," she insisted. "These are children."

She also claims that now that her daughter has been diagnosed as schizophrenic, she is back on the path to wellness. "When the medication finally worked, it was like a switch went on, like, 'There you are! Where have you been?'"

Leutner has made an unprecedented recovery after being stabbed 19 times. However, Morgan's therapist reports that when asked if she would kill someone if set free, she responded "I'd have to do it."
