Ana Kriegel’s murder trial has been hearing details about the room where she was found in a derelict building in Dublin last May.
Two teenage boys have pleaded NOT guilty to the 14-year-old schoolgirl’s murder.
Garda Sean Whyte was part of a search team that was dispatched on May 17th last to an area near Ana’s last known whereabouts.
Her last known location was at a public park near her home in Leixlip, Co. Kildare. She left her house for that park three days beforehand.
Garda Whyte said he saw something inside a derelict building that gave him cause for concern so he called the officer in charge.
In a small room to the front of the house, Sergeant Declan Birchall said he saw the body of a naked female lying on the floor.
On closer inspection, he said there was a ligature around her neck.
He said there were clothes strewn either side of the room and blood staining was found in various parts of the room as well as a number of items found within including a stick and a brick.
The boys, both aged 14, deny murdering Ana and one of them is further charged with, and denies, aggravated sexual assault.
