Opening statements are due to be heard today in the trial of two teenage boys accused of murdering 14-year-old Ana Cree-ah-ghel in Dublin last year.
The schoolgirl’s naked body was found in a disused building in Lucan a few days after she was reported missing last May.
Our Courts Correspondent Frank Greaney says the judge told the jury the details of the case will be upsetting;
“He listed about 140 witnesses and we heard that the trial is likely to take up to 6 weeks. The charges were put to the two boys yesterday – both boys have pleases not guilty to both charges.”
