TWO men have appeared in court charged with the murders of Hugh and Jaqueline McGeough.

The couple were shot dead at their home in Legahory Court in March last year.

Malcolm McKeown, 46, and James Carlisle, 31, whose addresses were given as Maghaberry Prison, appeared before Lisburn Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

They were remanded in custody to appear before videolink at Craigavon court on April 20.

A detective told the court that police have evidence to link the men to both murders.

He said the evidence is a combination of a witness statement, CCTV footage and telephone records.

A 19-year-old man arrested in connection with the incident has been released.
