The second 13-year-old boy charged with the murder of Kildare schoolgirl Ana Kriegel has been further remanded in custody pending the preparation of a book of evidence.

The boy, who cannot be named because he is a minor, is accused of the murder of 14-year-old Ana Kriegel at Glenwood House, Clonee Road, Lucan, on May 14.

He has been held at the Oberstown detention centre since July 12, when he was charged.

He faced a third hearing before Judge John O'Connor at Dublin Children's Court yesterday, in which he was remanded in continuing custody to appear again on August 14.

The co-accused, also aged 13, had already been remanded in custody on May 25. Bail terms, however, were set by the High Court for him on Monday.

He is due to appear again at the Children's Court later this week.

There has been no indication yet as to how either boy intends to plead.
