MILWAUKEE (AP) - A judge hearing the case of two 13-year-old girls accused of stabbing a classmate has lifted a ban on courtroom photography of the girls’ faces.

The two teens are accused of carrying out the stabbing to please a fictitious horror character known as Slender Man. They are to enter pleas Friday.

Waukesha County Circuit Judge Michael Bohren had the ban in place as the girls’ attorneys sought to move their cases to juvenile court. But Bohren earlier this month rejected that request, and on Thursday lifted the restrictions in response to media inquiries.

An attorney for one of the girls had objected to allowing the media to photograph her client’s face.

The Associated Press is not identifying the girls because an appeal may still move their cases to juvenile court.
