Two 14-year-old boys plead not guilty to murder of Ana Kriegel

Two teenage boys have pleaded not guilty to the murder of Ana Kriegel.

The 14-year-olds are accused of murdering the teenage girl at an abandoned farmhouse in Lucan, Co Dublin almost one year ago.

Kriegel had been missing for three days when her body was found at the site on May 14, 2018.

The boys, who cannot be named due to their age, both pleaded not guilty to murder at the Central Criminal Court this afternoon.

One of the boys also pleaded not guilty to the aggravated sexual assault of Kriegel.

RTE reports that the trial is expected to last approximately six weeks. The jury will hear from almost 150 witnesses.

The case continues tomorrow morning.
