Twelve-year-old Morgan Geyser is due back in court this morning. She's one of the two Waukesha girls accused of stabbing a school-mate 19 times in May, to please the fictional character Slender Man. Circuit Judge Michael Bohren is expected to review an update on Geyser's mental state. That after she was ruled mentally-incompetent in August to assist with her defense. A psychologist had testified that Geyser claimed to see and hear what others could not - including Slender Man, Harry Potter antagonist Voldemort, and unicorns.
Those wildly popular garage sales are apparently too much of a good thing in one central Wisconsin city. The Marshfield Common Council voted 6-to-3 last night to limit residents to four garage sales per year -- and none can last longer than four straight days. Officials said the purpose is to end perpetual garage sales in the city of 19-thousand. Alderman Ed Wagner said it takes a lot of work to put a sale together -- and that spurs some people to do it over an entire summer if they don't sell their goods right away.
The death toll now stands at four in crashes on snow-covered and icy roads in Minnesota. Two people from Missouri were killed yesterday when their car slid into the path of another car on Highway 21 northwest of Faribault. Earlier this week, Tyler Evan of Belle Plaine was killed when he lost control on a Carver County road. Mridusha Allen of Springfield was killed Monday afternoon in Blue Earth County when she lost control on icy Highway 68 and slid into the path of a semi. _________________ Two Roger

NEWARK, NJ -- The Minnesota Wild's losing streak reached four games with a 3-1 setback Tuesday night in New Jersey. Devils goaltender Corey Schneider made 23 saves to help end his team's four-game skid. The Wild's lone goal was a short-hander by former Devils forward Ryan Carter in the third period. Minnesota was penalized for too many men on the ice with less than a minute remaining and New Jersey's Travis Zajac (ZAY'-jack) scored an empty-netter to seal the victory. The Wild host the Buffalo Sabres tomorrow (Thurs) night at the Xcel Energy Center.&nb
