Morgan Geyser is pleading guilty in the "Slender Man" stabbing of a classmate, in a deal that will allow her to not be sentenced to prison. Instead, Geyser will be committed in a mental hospital.
The plea agreement was announced on Friday. Under the deal, doctors will evaluate Geyser, then advise a judge on how long they believe the teen should remain in treatment.
Geyser had been set to go on trial next month on attempted homicide charges. She previously pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease.
