WAUKESHA - The 12-year-old victim in a brutal stabbing last week has been released from the hospital, her family announced Friday evening.

“Today, our daughter was released from Waukesha Memorial Hospital into the care of her family and friends," the statement reads. "She is excited to be out of the hospital, see her pets, and continue along the road to recovery."
