Can they be named now or is it after they are officially sentenced later?

Virtually nobody ever pleads guilty to murder as the sentence is life anyway, there's no mitigation for a guilty plea and there's always a chance of a technicality.

IT's summation

Ana Kriegel trial: two 14-year-old boys found guilty of murdering schoolgirl
Jury returns guilty verdicts on all three charges after more than 14 hours deliberation

Two 14-year-old boys have been found guilty of the murder of Ana Kriégel last year, becoming the youngest people in the history of the State to be convicted of murder.

The jury returned guilty verdicts on Tuesday afternoon following 14 and a half hours of deliberation against both accused who were known throughout the trial as Boy A and Boy B due to their age.

Boy A was convicted of the murder and violent sexual assault of the 14-year-old girl. Boy B was convicted of murder.

Both accused were remanded in custody in Oberstown until July 15th while probation reports are prepared, as is required under the Children Act 2001.

Boy A appeared upset while Boy B had his head bowed after the verdicts came in. Boy B’s father stormed out of the courtroom.

Mr Justice Paul McDermott thanked the jury for its service and excused members from further service for life.

The prosecution had alleged Boy B lured Ana from her home at 5pm on May 14th, 2018 on the pretence of meeting Boy A, who Ana was “interested” in.

Boy A then allegedly violently sexually assaulted and murdered her in the derelict farmhouse as Boy B watched.

Pleaded not guilty

Boy A had pleaded not guilty to the murder and sexual assault “involving serious violence” of Ana Kriégel on May 14th, 2018, at Glenwood House, Laraghcon, Clonee Road, Lucan in Dublin.

Boy B had pleaded not guilty to the murder of the girl on the same date.

The majority of the evidence against Boy A was based on forensic findings linking him the scene. Ana’s blood was found on his boots and his semen was found on her top. A boot print similar to the boots worn by this boy was also found on her top.

Ana’s blood was found on a home-made skull type mask, gloves and knee-pads which were found in a backpack located in Boy A’s room.

Boy A was spotted in CCTV walking alone in St Catherine’s Park in the direction of Glenwood House shortly before Ana was murdered there.

He was later observed by a witness walking back through the park with blood on his top. When he arrived home Boy A told his father he had been beaten up by two men in the park but had managed to fight them off.

His father brought the boy back to the park and drove him around the local area to see if he could identify his attackers.

Gardaí were alerted and the boy would later spend three and a half hours in Garda Headquarters compiling a photo-fit of the men he said attacked him. He was also treated for several injuries by his GP.

No witnesses

Gardaí did not locate any witnesses who saw men matching the description. Nor was anyone matching the descriptions observed on the CCTV cameras in the area.

On May 15th, the day after Ana was first reported missing, gardaí called to Boy A’s house after being told by Boy B they had been in the park with Ana.

He told gardaí he met Ana and Boy B, who he described as one of his best friends, in St Catherine’s Park. He said Ana asked him out but he told her he wasn’t interested. He said he tried to let her down gently but she became upset and stormed off.

He told gardaí he then walked off in another direction and was then assaulted by the two men.

Gardaí had Boy A and Boy B walk the same route in the park they said they walked with Ana the day before. Sergeant John Dunne said at one point he saw Boys A and B exchange a “look” in the park.

Boy A was first arrested on May 24th, 2018, a week after Ana’s body was found in the abandoned house. He was interviewed in the company of his father and solicitor.

Are you joking me? . . . Are you actually being serious?
Gardaí put to Boy A that Ana’s blood was found on his boots. The boy responded; “Are you joking me?” and “Are you actually being serious?” He denied been with Ana at the time she was first reported missing.

At one stage gardaí read him a portion of Boy B’s interview in which he stated Boy A was in the abandoned house with Ana and that he heard a scream.

Asked if he wanted to make any additional statements, Boy A responded: “[Boy B] is lying. That is all.”

Charged

He was charged the following day.

In his address to the jury, Boy A’s counsel Patrick Gageby SC said there was no evidence his client intended to kill Ana. He also suggested some of the DNA evidence from her body could have resulted from “casual intimacy.”

Counsel said the pathology evidence did not definitively prove injuries to the vagina resulted from non-consensual activity.

The jury might decide Boy A was present when the injuries were inflicted on Ana, counsel said. “But is there any real evidence that he planned any of this?” he had asked.

The case against Boy B stemmed almost entirely from the eight interviews he gave to gardaí which lasted a total of 16 hours. Over the course of the interviews Boy B changed his account several times.

He initially said he Boy A had pleaded with him to call for Ana on his behalf so they could discuss “relationship issues”.

He called for Ana and brought her to the park where he said he “handed her over” to Boy A. he said he walked with them for a while before leaving and walking home.

You lie to everybody. Lie lie lie. You’re in a corner and you try to wiggle out of it by telling a story to suit
By the end of his first period of arrest on May 25th the boy had conceded he went to the abandoned house with Ana and Boy A and that as he made his way home alone he heard Ana scream.

Re-arrested

He was re-arrested on July 7th after new evidence emerged. During the following three interviews he made more admissions. He told gardaí he had witnessed Boy A attack Ana in the house.

Boy A “flipped” Ana to the ground before starting to choke and strip her, he told gardaí.

Asked what Boy A was doing to her, Boy B said he was “raping” her.

He first said Boy A had a “blank look” on his face during the attack. He then said he was wearing a homemade “zombie” mask. This mask was later found in Boy A’s bedroom with Ana’s blood on it.

Boy B said he fled the scene after witnessing Boy A remove her top. He ran home where he tried to forget about what happened, he said.

Detective Garda Donal Daly told the boy: “You lie to everybody. Lie lie lie. You’re in a corner and you try to wiggle out of it by telling a story to suit. Do you see how this looks for you?”

Boy B said that he did. Det Gda Daly put it to him that he let “a charade” play out in the days after Ana went missing as people searched for her while he knew she was in the abandoned house.

“I didn’t know he would murder her,” Boy B said. “I kept thinking to myself this isn’t real, this isn’t happening. I kept thinking Boy A wouldn’t do this. It’s not like him.”

He also told gardaí Boy A had suggested a month previously that they kill someone. He said when he asked who, Boy A replied “Ana Kriégel”. Boy B told gardaí he assumed his friend was joking.

Boy B’s defence counsel Damian Colgan SC said his client was scared of Boy A who was bigger and stronger than him. He said Boy B had been “set-up” by his friend.

Counsel said there was no way Boy B would be stupid enough to call for Ana and walk her through park full of CCTV cameras if he knew the plan was to murder her.

Boy B lied to gardaí, counsel conceded, but he did so because he was traumatised by what he saw in Glenwood House.

He was also scared of Boy A, who was bigger and stronger than him and knew martial arts.

Mr Colgan had told the jury they must find Boy B not guilty if they believed he had no knowledge of a plan to kill Ana.

The prosecution contended Boy B lied for no other reason than to cover up his guilt.

more detailed one from RTE

Quote:
Two 14-year-old boys have been found guilty of the murder of Ana Kriégel in Lucan just over a year ago.

The jury found the first boy murdered her by causing severe and extensive injuries to her head and neck. He was also convicted of violently sexually assaulting her.

The second boy lured the schoolgirl from her home, knowing what was going to happen, watched the assaults and covered-up afterwards.

The boys were 13 at the time and had pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Ana Kriégel's innocence and longing for friendship made her vulnerable to those who wanted to take advantage of her.

Ana, 14, bounded out of her house in the early evening of 14 May last year, thinking she was going to meet a boy she liked.

By the time her concerned mother, Geraldine (below), went looking for her around 45 minutes later, she had already been murdered and the culprits were heading home.

The second accused boy took Ana on a 3km journey from her home, through St Catherine's Park in Lucan, telling her his friend wanted to see her.

It took them around half an hour to get to Glenwood House, an abandoned building on the far side of the park.

The prosecution alleged Boy A was already inside the house or in the field surrounding it.

Three days later, Ana's naked body was found inside, in a dark, dirty room.

Forensic scientist John Hoade analysed the blood staining in the room and found Ana had been hit several times with a weapon while lying on the floor near the doorway.

He said she lay there for some time, before her body was moved towards the back of the room where it was found.

The jury was shown a stick, measuring around one metre long, as well as a large concrete block, which were both stained with Ana's blood. A very strong, highly adhesive length of builder's tape had been looped around her neck.

The former State pathologist, Professor Marie Cassidy, told the court there were around 60 areas of injury to the 14-year-old's body.

There were four separate impacts to the right side and back of her head, and evidence of compression of her neck.

Prof Cassidy said either the injuries to her head or to her neck would have been sufficient to cause death.

Both boys were allowed to remain outside court for her evidence, after applications by their lawyers.

Gardaí became concerned about inconsistencies in the stories of the two boys. The discrepancies were confirmed as they gathered CCTV footage.

Boy A denied ever being in the house. But forensic examinations established Ana's blood was in nine places on the boots he had been wearing, indicating that he either assaulted her or was very close by when she was attacked.

Her blood was also found on a backpack in his house and on some of the bag's contents, described by gardaí as his "murder kit". They included a home-made zombie mask, black gloves and a knee pad.

Boy A's DNA was identified in semen found on Ana's torn vest top. His DNA was also on a swab taken from her neck and part of the builder's tape. A mark on her black hoodie was made by a boot similar to one worn by him.

The prosecution told the jurors, there was no explanation for these facts, consistent with innocence. The jury agreed.

The jury found Boy B brought Ana to the house, knowing what his friend was going to do. He provided the tape found around her neck and participated in the cover-up afterwards.

In eight interviews, lasting almost 17 hours during two arrests, the boy changed his story at least nine times as gardaí confronted him with evidence.

Each time he had to put himself closer to the room where the murder happened, as the lies were "peeled away".

Eventually, the boy admitted seeing Boy A choking and stripping Ana before, he said, he freaked out and ran away. But gardaí believed the final story he gave them, was still short of the truth.

He gave slightly different versions to a friend, and earlier this year, to a psychologist.

Mr Justice Paul McDermott told the jurors this case was unusual and urged them to examine the upsetting and disquieting evidence clinically.

The trial lasted seven weeks and heard from more than 60 witnesses, eight of them also young teenagers.

"Casual intimacy" - Patrick Gageby should really hang his head in shame.

The tears are streaming down my face. My heart is broken for her poor parents. I hope this verdict will bring them a little comfort.
