Waukesha judge delays Slender Man trial

It's a case that's already had more than its share of delays.

The trial of two Waukesha girls charged with trying to kill a classmate won't start until early next year.

This morning, a Waukesha judge agreed with a defense request to delay the trial until an appeals court decides whether to move the case from adult to juvenile court.  13-year-olds Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier are accused of stabbing a classmate 19 times to appease the fictional character "Slender Man."  

The next court appearance was pushed all the way back to January 15.
