The second boy accused of murdering teenager Ana Kriegel has been further remanded in custody after a judge was told a file on the case is with the DPP.

The boy (13) had his case adjourned when he made his second court appearance yesterday, charged with the murder at a disused farmhouse in west Dublin.

The accused, who cannot be named due to his age, is charged with murdering Anastasia Kriegel, known as Ana, at Glenwood House, Laraghcon, Clonee Road, Lucan, on May 14 this year.

When the boy was led into Dublin Children's Court yesterday, he nodded at Judge John O'Connor, said "good morning", and took his seat.

"How are you getting on?" Judge O'Connor asked him.

"Good," the boy replied.

Det Sgt Damien Gannon applied for a two-week remand in the case. He said a file was with the DPP.

The judge said this would bring them into the court's vacation period in August, and offered to "put it in to just before that". The boy was remanded in custody to appear again on July 31.
