The 12-year-old girl who was stabbed 19 times and left for dead by two friends in Waukesha, Wisconsin has been released from the hospital, her parents say. A spokesperson for the girl's family say she went home Friday night.

The statement says the girl, who had been stabbed in a wooded park as a way to please mythological creature Slender Man, is "excited to be out of the hospital, see her pets and continue along the road to recovery."

The two suspects have been charged as adults with first-degree attempted homicide.
