A TEENAGER who admitted to helping a friend stab a classmate 19 times to appease the horror character Slender Man will be released from a mental health institution, a judge ruled Friday.
Anissa Weier, 19, will be released from the Winnebago Mental Health Institute in Wisconsin on Monday and placed on 24-hour watch.
In his ruling, Waukesha County Judge Michael Bohren said Weier will be subject to constant GPS monitoring and receive outpatient psychiatric treatment under the conditions of her release.
Bohren said the terms of the release were fair and "provide for the protection of the community" as well as for the victim.
Weier's attorney said the teen "looks forward to moving on to a productive life."
Weier has spent almost four years at the mental institute after she admitted to taking part in the 2014 stabbing of Payton Leutne, in what became known as the Slender Man case.
Weier and her friend Morgan Geyser lured Leutne into a park in the Milwaukee suburb of Waukesha following a sleepover in May 2014.
Geyser stabbed Leutner multiple times, while Weier cheered her on.
All three girls were just 12-years-old at the time.
Weier and Geyser left Leutner for dead but a passing cyclist spotted her on the ground and called 911.
The teen had been stabbed a sickening 19 times but narrowly survived.
Weier and Geyser were found by police hours after the attack walking along Interstate 94.
When approached by officers, the girls told them they were on their way to Slender Man's mansion.
