An application to include fresh evidence in Boy B's appeal against his conviction for the murder of Ana Kriégel has been rejected.
The teenager was one of two boys found guilty of murdering the 14-year-old school girl in 2018.
Ahead of his appeal, he claimed he was subjected to "manipulation and pressure" from Gardaí when he gave statements that were used to convict him.
Boy B’s new defence team applied to have new psychological evidence included in his appeal, which the court has rejected.
The judge described it as a “radical application” and rejected it - citing the fact the psychologists behind the report had never actually met the boy in person.
The judge also noted that it wasn’t suggested by Boy B’s original defence team at the time of the trial.
