The two, now aged 15, were convicted of murder by unanimous jury verdicts earlier this year.

Passing sentence, Mr Justice Paul McDermott said that Ana Kriegel’s life was and is of “supreme importance” and her short life should not be defined by the crimes committed against her.

“The two boys bear responsibility for her murder and must be accountable and accept the consequences of their crimes,” noted the judge, adding that this was a murder of the “most serious, disturbing and shocking type” because of the extreme violence used.

Her 15 - year -old killers, who legally can only be referred to as Boy A and Boy B , were today caged at Dublin's Central Criminal Court. The first was jailed for life with a review after 12 years after being found guilty of murder and serious sexual assault, while the second killer will spend 15 years in prison

The 15 - year -old boy who murdered schoolgirl Ana Kriegel after sexually assaulting her near Dublin nearly 18 months ago has been jailed for life . Boy A , who was also convicted of aggravated sexual assault, was sentenced to life in prison today with a review period after 12 years .

Referring to Boy A, the judge emphasised that he was not satisfied that the teenager had told the whole truth as a good degree of what he said was “self-serving”.

The “mental terror and suffering” that he inflicted on Ana was of a very high degree, said the judge, adding that he had “devastated and caused huge sorrow and loss” to the victim’s family.

There is little appreciation of the enormity of what has been done, he said.

The judge said that Boy B had watched as Ana was sexually and brutally assaulted and did not take steps to assist her, leaving the scene without seeking help.

At his sentence hearing last week, the court heard that Boy B does not accept the jury’s verdict, which found him guilty of murdering the fourteen-year-old, and maintains the position that he had no part in what happened.

Defence counsel Damien Colgan SC said reports handed into the court stated that his client was at a low risk of re-offending and had “personal difficulties” as well as “suicidal tendencies”. The barrister further pointed to the boy’s remorse and “guilt in respect of his inactivity and why he didn’t intervene to assist Ana”.

In his closing speech, prosecution counsel Brendan Grehan SC told the jury that Boy B “lured” Ana to her death, saying: “Any suggestion that he assisted in this matter without the knowledge of what was to happen is not credible.”

It was the prosecution’s case that the evidence against Boy B was largely gleaned from what he said in his garda interviews, where he told a mixture of “lies, untruths and half-truths”.

Before delivering the sentence this morning, the judge said Ana’s precious right to life “entitled her to live it to its full potential”.
