A teenager will again stand trial for the murder of Urantsetseg Tserendorj who was stabbed while she walked home from work at the IFSC district in Dublin last year.
The Director of Public Prosecutions decided to seek a retrial after a jury failed to reach agreement last month.
The boy, who cannot be identified because he’s under 18, pleaded guilty to manslaughter at the outset of his original trial but denied her murder.
Earlier this month, the accused pleaded not guilty to the murder of Ms Tserendorj but guilty to her manslaughter on January 29th, 2021.
The State did not accept his plea. He also pleaded guilty to producing a knife and to attempting to rob Ms Tserendorj.
Mr Justice Paul McDermott set October 24th, 2022 as the date for the teenager’s retrial before a jury at the Central Criminal Court.
