The prosecution in the trial of two teenage boys accused of murdering 14-year-old Ana Kriegel believes she was lured to her death.

Four days after she went missing last May, Gardaí found her naked body in what was described as a “dirty, dark and derelict” house.

Both boys deny murdering Ana Kriegel last May. One of them is further charged with violently sexually assaulting her.

They were both 13 at the time. She was 14.

It is the prosecution’s case that one of them lured her from her home in Leixlip, Co. Kildare, knowing what was in store for her.

It will be claimed that he handed her over to the other boy and watched as his friend sexually assaulted her.

Ana’s body was found in a derelict farmhouse 3km from her home four days later. She only had socks on and tape was wrapped around her neck.

Prosecuting barrister Brendan Grehan said he believed the forensic evidence against the boy who’s also accused of sexually assaulting her is “compelling”.

He told the jurors they’d also hear from witnesses who will give accounts of seeing him limping with blood on his face and clothes that evening.

He said he believed the story he told his parents and Gardaí that he fought off two men who tried to mug him was “made-up”.
