A JUDGE has varied an earlier order ruling that there was to be no further publication of any evidence in the trial of two 14-year-old boys accused of the murder of Ana Kriegel until after the verdicts.

Mr Justice Paul McDermott said the ruling would only apply to one media organisation.

The youths, aged 13 at the time, have pleaded not guilty at the Central Criminal Court to the murder of schoolgirl Anastasia 'Ana' Kriegel (14) at Glenwood House, Laraghcon, Clonee Road in Lucan on May 14 last year.

One of the boys has also denied a further charge of aggravated sexual assault.

Ana's body was found by gardai at the disused farmhouse three days after she was reported missing. She was last seen by her father leaving her home at 5pm on the day she disappeared.
