Both defendants also filed to have a jury from a different county hear the case, but Judge Michael Bohren has now rejected both of those motions as well.
Leutner recovered from 19 stab wounds, but a doctor testified she nearly died. In questioning by Waukesha Police, Geyser and Weier said they carried out the stabbing to become "proxies" of the fictional internet-based character Slender Man, whom they told police they thought was real.
In varying accounts, the pair said they both feared and admired the ghoul.
Geyser was later diagnosed with schizophrenia, and both girls are pleading not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect.
