Boy B to lodge appeal against conviction in Ana Kriegel murder trial
One of the two teenage boys who were found guilty of murdering Ana Kriegel has lodged an appeal against his conviction.
BOY B was accused of luring the 14-year-old schoolgirl from her home in Leixlip to a derelict farmhouse in Lucan where she was killed last year.
The now 15-year-old was sentenced to 15 years detention for his role in her murder, but his sentence is to be reviewed in eight years.
At last month’s sentence hearing, the court heard he doesn’t accept the verdict and his lawyers have now lodged an appeal against his conviction.
There’s still no word on whether BOY A intends to appeal his conviction and/or sentence.
