Now, to the latest on those two 12-year-old girls accused of nearly stabbing a friend to death, driven by the fictional slender man character. They're due in court today. And Alex Perez is tracking this for us from waukesha, Wisconsin. Good morning, Alex. Reporter: Good morning, robin. Those two suspects are expected here at the courthouse a little later today. And we're learning more about the young girl they're accused of attacking. They say she's recovering faster than imagined. A judge could decide if they're case will be sent to juvenile court. The two 12-year-olds are charged as adults, with intentional homicide. Allegedly luring so-called friend in the woods with a game of hide and seek. And then, stabbing her 19 times. Allegedly carrying out the attack in hopes of meeting a fictional online character named slender man. Weier allegedly telling investigators, you need to kill a person to show you dedication to slender man. The girls are in adult court because this is such a serious crime. On the other hand, most crimes committed by 12-year-olds, even if they're very serious, are handled in juvenile court. Reporter: At today's court hearing, defense attorneys could request to have the suspects' $500,000 bail reduced. Both have been behind bars since the alleged attack may 31st. As for the alleged victim, she managed to survive the brutal attack, crawling out to this road, gasping for air and catching the attention of a bicyclist who called 911. Is there any bleeding going on? Her clothing has blood on it. Reporter: She's recovering at home. Her parents say her physical wounds are healing. Boxes and boxes of purple hearts have come from around the world. Purple, her favorite color. Many wearing purple in waukesha, Tuesday, as well, to support the young girl who survived the unthinkable. And the family of the young victim has received more than $40,000 in donations from around the world to help them with medical costs. The two suspects are due in court early this afternoon. Robin? George? Thank you very much. She's back home. She's back home. Thank goodness for that.
