Two 14-year-old boys have been found guilty of the murder of Ana Kriégel in Lucan just over a year ago.
The jury found the first boy murdered her by causing severe and extensive injuries to her head and neck. He was also convicted of violently sexually assaulting her.
The second boy lured the schoolgirl from her home, knowing what was going to happen, watched the assaults and covered up afterwards.
The boys were 13 at the time and had pleaded not guilty to all charges.
