It calls for Geyser to be evaluated by doctors who will report to a judge for a determination of how long she should remain in treatment. Geyser and Anissa Weier were charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide in the 2014 attack in Waukesha. Weier pleaded guilty to a reduced charge last month. A jury later concluded she was mentally ill at the time of the crime. She faces at least three years in a mental hospital.

All three girls were 12 at the time.
