A BOY accused of murdering Ana Kriegel told garda interviewers that he thought of her as a "weirdo" and she wasn't liked because she was "different", a trial heard.

Present during the first and second interviews were Boy B, his mother, his solicitor David Powderly, Detective Garda Donal Daly and Detective Sergeant (now Inspector) Damien Gannon.

Mr Justice Paul McDermott told the jury to bear in mind that anything Boy B said in his interviews with gardai about Boy A could not be used in the prosecution case against Boy A.

During the first interview, Boy B said he called to Ana's house and when she came to the door she asked him what he wanted.

"I replied '[Boy A] wants to see you", he said.

"Once I said that she got her clothes, shoes and mobile phone and came out the door with me", he said.

Boy B also told gardai that he was aware there was CCTV in the park, and he pointed out three areas where he said there were cameras.

The jury has started to hear the second interview, which began at 15.02 on May 24, 2018. Gardai asked Boy B to describe Ana Kriegel.

Boy B said Ana was not liked because she was "different" and "weird", he said.

He said she was taller and more mature than other girls, and her breasts, posture and hips had developed more than other girls.

She was a "lonely and sad person" and had been through depression quite a bit, he said.

Boy B said Ana was a goth and dressed all in black, usually in "slutty clothes", like tight trousers, short shorts and t-shirts.

He said Ana wore the kind of clothes that made her breasts and hips stand out and it appeared, to him, that she wanted people to look at her by the clothes she was wearing.

She was also anti-social and "if you asked her to hang out she'd probably say no", Boy B said.

The trial continues before Mr Justice McDermott and a jury of eight men and four women.
