Boy A responded, "I am aware".

Gda Doyle also put it to Boy A that the blood on his boots put him in the room where Ana's body was found.

"Were you in this room?" Gda Doyle asked.

"No," said Boy A.

Earlier, the court heard from John Hoade, a specialist in blood pattern and DNA analysis with Forensic Science Ireland, who said a pair of boots worn by Boy A on the day Ana disappeared had her blood on them.

The court heard Mr Hoade examined a pair of boots which were worn by Boy A on May 14.

He said there were nine separate areas of blood staining on the boots, and the DNA from the blood matched that of Ana Kriegel.

Mr Hoade said that some of the staining on the boots could be identified as blood spatter. This occurs when external force is applied to a source of liquid blood, which then falls on a surface.

The blood spatter on Boy A's boot indicated Boy A "either assaulted Ana Kriegel or was in very close proximity when she was assaulted", Mr Hoade told the jury.

'Are you joking me?' asked boy when told Ana's blood on his boots, trial hears The court heard Mr Hoade also examined a length of stick which was discovered in the room where Ana's body was found. The stick measured 92cm long, and 4cm x 3cm wide.

Mr Hoade said there was blood spatter and general staining on the piece of wood.

He said the blood on the stick was tested for DNA and the DNA matched Ana Kriegel's DNA.

Mr Hoade also identified a particular pattern of blood staining known as feathering on the stick which he said was "associated with a weapon that has been swung".

He said that the blood staining on the wooden stick was what he would expect if the "piece of wood was used as a weapon".

The trial continues today.
