One of the teenage boys convicted of the murder of teenager Ana Kriégel, known as Boy B, has been withdrawn.
RTÉ reports, “earlier this year, the Court of Appeal dismissed an application by the boy, known as ‘Boy B’, to introduce fresh evidence at his appeal.”
The now 18 year old had made claims through his legal team that “garda interviews were inadequate and inappropriate and should not have been admitted at his trial in 2019.”
Boy B was convicted along with another known as Boy A of the brutal murder of of Ana in 2018, when she was just 14 years old.
The Russian- Irish teenager was sexually assaulted and murdered in an abandoned building in Lucan.
Anna’s parents reported her missing after she left her home in Leixlip in the company of Boy B.
Her remains were discovered three days later by Gardaí .
The Irish Independent had reported that there was no forensic evidence against Boy B although he admitted under garda interrogation that he had witnessed Boy A assaulting Ana after bringing her to the abandoned building where she was killed.
