A Wisconsin state appeals court has ruled that two girls accused of trying to kill their classmate in an attempt to please the fictional horror character slender man should be tried as adults.

Today the 2nd District Appeals Court affirmed a lower court’s determination that it was reasonable to try both girls as adults. The girls were 12 years old in 2014 when, authorities say, they lured their classmate into woods in Waukesha after a birthday sleepover and repeatedly stabbed her.

The girls could appeal the rulings to the State Supreme Court.
