    Thank you! The reason I asked was due to the nature of some articles 'out there'.
    Then I realized the same details were in the article linked above.

    This child was a victim of SA, as well as being murdered. Maybe I missed that in more current articles, but I do not think that was covered.

    And the perpetrators are given holiday with their family, and afforded anonymity for these heinous crimes. I do not understand. I don't think my fore-bearers would understand. Maybe I'm just horrified that these 'children' killed this child.

    Her killer
    The investigation has also established the teenager was sexually assaulted. Consequently, they believe DNA samples gathered from the scene will help apprehend her killer.

    Poor Ana did not get to spend holidays with her family. SMH.

    ah Jim - I am refraining myself from writing what I think about this whole case. I just can't get my head around why they are out on bail. Can anyone shed any light ? What I have read on MSM she was SA and died a horrible death - I live a kilometer from where she was found and my heartbreaks every time I pass the place

    Two 14-year-old boys accused of murdering teenager at derelict house in Lucan in 2018

    The trial of two teenage boys for the alleged murder of 14-year-old Ana Kriegel in 2018 is to begin on Monday afternoon.

    The boys, who are both aged 14, are to stand trial in the Central Criminal Court in the Criminal Courts of Justice in Dublin at 2pm.

    Due to the boys’ age they cannot be identified and the trial will be closed to the general public. Other measures, such as the use of video-link for some witnesses and a restriction on the number of journalists allowed in court, will also be in place.

    A jury will be sworn on Monday with the opening speeches expected to begin on Tuesday. The trial is expected to last two weeks.

    The defendants are accused of murdering Ms Kriegel at a derelict house at Laraghcon, Clonee Road, Lucan in Dublin on May 14th, 2018.

    Ms Kriegel’s body was found three days later after she had been reported missing.

    Some twitter updates:
    ______________

    We are now hearing the opening statements of the Ana Kriegel murder trial. Brendan Grehan on behalf of the prosecution is about to lay out the facts of the case.

    Brendan Grehan says the two accused are entitled to the presumption of innocence. "They come in cloaked in that presumption."

    Brendan Grehan describing murder law: "The person who provides assistance even if they physically didn't do something themselves they can be equally guilty of the offence of murder."

    Brendan Grehan describing how gardai found Ana's boody. "The body was naked except for socks at her feet and a tie around her neck which was made by a distinctive builders tape. She had obvious head injuries. The scene was bloody and blood spattered."

    Details of the post mortem also revealed serious and extensive injuries to Ana's head and neck, Grehan says. State pathologist Marie Cassidy found injuries suggesting attempted penetration of Ana's vagina, he adds.

    Court is now hearing about different accounts given by both accused to gardai in initial aftermath of Ana's disappearance.

    A number of people gave accounts of seeing Accused 1 limping and with blood on his face and clothing on the evening Ana went missing, court hears. He told a friend whose house he called to that he had been attacked by two men he fought off.

    Prosecution says Accused 1 is connected to the scene by DNA found on Ana's neck and on semen found on her top.

    Court hears about contents about Accused 1's backpack - included knee pads, shin pads and a makeshift zombie mask.

    Regarding Accused 2 - Brendan Grehan says that the boy lured Ana to the park in full knowledge of what was about to happen and that he "voyeuristically" watched Accused 1 sexually assault and murder Ana.

    Grehan describes how Ana was bullied and she found her teenage years difficult She was the object of bullying and dressed and acted differently to others of her age. "She craved friends and friendships and was vulnerable," Grehan adds.

    14-year-old Anastasia Kriégel was dead within 45 minutes of leaving her home on 14 May 2018, the Central Criminal Court has been told.

    [...]

    Prosecuting counsel, Brendan Grehan told the jury, Anastasia’s naked body was found in a small room in a derelict farmhouse in Lucan three days after she went missing.

    There was a ligature made from builder's tape around her neck and she had severe and extensive injuries to her head and neck as well as injuries to her vagina.

    He said the State pathologist Marie Cassidy concluded she had been violently assaulted within the room and that there had been a struggle.

    She had last been seen at her home at 5pm on 14 May, the court heard when one of the accused boys in the case, Boy B, called for her and told her that the other accused, Boy A wanted to meet her in the park.

    Gardaí searching for Ms Kriégel discovered her body in a vacant farm house on May 17th, 2018.

    Her body was naked except for socks and a “very distinctive” ligature was around her neck made from builder’s tape.

    The scene was bloody and there were blood splatters. Her clothes, which had signs of being forcibly removed were scattered around the room. He phone was also there, broken into two pieces.

    [...]

    Ms Kriégel was last seen at 5pm that day when she left her house in the company of Boy B and was also seen in a nearby park with this boy.

    Her mother later tried unsuccessfully to contact her by phone. It was very unusual for Ms Kriégel not to respond to calls or texts from her mother.

    It was also not normal for her to hang around with Boy B, counsel said.

    Her mother began to worry and within a short time, at about 5.45pm, she went looking for her in the nearby park. The prosecution says Ms Kriégel was already dead at this stage.

    The family continued to try find her before reporting the matter to Lucan Gardai just after 9pm that evening.

    [...]

    Regarding Ms Kriégel, counsel said her teenage years were difficult. She was bullied and called names. She sometimes engaged in “attention seeking behaviour” and “wanted to be noticed.”

    He said “she craved friends and friendship and was for that reason vulnerable to people who wanted to take advantage of her.”

    She was attending counselling and had completed a session on the day she went missing.

    The trial will continue with its first witnesses this afternoon.

    These unnamed murderers really worked together to end this young girl's life. She did not get to learn, and grow, and find the needed ways, to avoid 'boys' like these two.

    This makes me curious as to how this 'defense team', will work to portray our victim's last 45 minutes on this Earth? They best not even go near blaming our victim.

    We are now hearing that Ana was adopted from Russia at the age of two. Ana suffered from hearing and sight problems, court hears.

    Geraldine Kriegel is describing how Ana loved singing and dancing and would often be in the sitting room listening to music.

    On entering secondary school (which we are not naming) - Geraldine says a resource teacher from Ana's primary was "terrified for Ana and that she felt she was so vulnerable and innocent that many children might make a mockery out of her a tease her".

    We are also hearing that Ana was cyberbullied by a number of people in years ahead of her in school. Geraldine says Ana was sent sexually explicit messages on Snapchat and teased about being adopted.

    Messages Ana received on social media including one from someone who said he would "have her executed", Ana's mother said.

    Geraldine said Ana was the victim of an assault six months prior to her death. Four boys approached her and one of them assaulted her. "One of the boys said 'you're going to have sex with me' and she said no and as she was about to cross the road he hit her on the bum," she said.

    We are wrapping up for the day here. We will be back tomorrow tomorrow.

    Ana's father Patrick Kriegel is now giving evidence.

    "She was a happy child," Patrick says.

    "She got stressed (when she went to secondary school) - that was not like her at all. She would come home and the stories we heard were not very happy stories. "I think people didn't understand her because she was different. She was herself. Full of fun."

    We are now hearing evidence from Patric. He says Ana was happy as she left the house that day in the company of a boy.

    Patric told the court that he saw a boy, who was shorter than Ana, walking with her in the direction of a local park. The boy had a dark-coloured backpack on him, he said.

    Jury is now being shown CCTV images. One, the prosecution alleges, is of Boy B and Ana walking in the direction of a local park.

    We are now hearing from Garda Conor Muldoon from Leixlip Garda Station.

    Garda Muldoon was working at Leixlip Garda Station when the Kriegel family arrived to report Ana missing.

    Geraldine Kriegel told gardai Ana was last seen in the company of Boy B - gardai managed to get an address for the accused. Garda Muldoon then went to Boy B's house at around 10.45pm and asked to speak to him.

    Boy B was asked if he knew Ana and when was the last time he saw her. Garda Muldoon said Boy B "explained to us that he and Ana had gone to a park, briefly spoke and turned in the direction of home".

    Back in court nine - next witness Sergeant Aengus Hussey.

    We are hearing about the day after Ana's disappearance and how Boy A and B went with gardai to a local park to show where they had last seen Ana.

    At one point, Sergeant Hussey said the two boys shared a "look" when Boy B stated he had not walked a certain way. Sgt Hussey said : "I felt immediately there was something wrong" The boys were then split up.

    Sergeant Hussey tells the court Boy A told him during their walk of the park that Ana had asked him out. He said he wasn't interested. He said she was upset and that she turned and left.

    Court now hears that Boy A told Sgt Hussey that he had been assaulted by two males that day and that is why he was limping.

    Gardai called to the house of Boy B to get permission from parents so that he could give a statement to clarify his movements in the local park.

    Boy B's initial statement read to the court - details how he called for Ana and brought her to see Boy A. Said he then left and went home to do homework. He said: "I have no clue what happened to her."

    Detective Garda John O'Keeffe is the next witness.

    He says he was present in the park on the afternoon where the two boys were showing gardai the route they took on the day they last saw Ana. Says he observed Boy A limping and that he had his arm in a sling.

    Boy A told him that two men had assaulted him, Detective O'Keeffe says.

    We have just heard the statement from Boy A. It claims that Ana asked him out in the park and he said no. He then described the two men who allegedly attacked him in the park.

    The court heard that Boy A's statement detailed how he managed to get up off the ground and kick one of the alleged assailants in the head. He said they then ran off. He said they did not demand money or any of his property.
