Both girls involved in stab attack told detectives that they did it in order to protect their families from the supernatural devil who depicted as resembling unnaturally tall and thin man with a featureless and black face, who wears a black suit only. Weier and Geyer felt like they had to kill classmate Leutner.
Weier’s lawyer Maura McMahon said, “Life is better for children when adults around them are in communication with each other.”
Leutner’s family did not say anything and left the courtroom, no statement out from their side.
“It comes down to did she have to or did she want to?” Deputy District Attorney Ted Szczupakiewicz said. “It wasn’t kill or be killed. It was a choice and she needs to be held criminally responsible,” the Fox News reported.
