The jury in the Ana Kriegel trial has been sent home for the day having deliberated for just under half an hour.
They’ve been asked to consider whether two teenage boys murdered the 14-year-old Kildare schoolgirl in a derelict house in Dublin on May 14th last year.
They must also decide if one of the boys committed an aggravated sexual assault, as alleged by the prosecution.
The boys, who were both 13 years of age at the time of Ana's death, deny the charges.
