Pair remanded over shooting deaths

Two men have been remanded in custody charged with the murders of a husband and wife in Co Armagh.

Malcolm McKeown, 46, and James Carlisle, 31, are accused of shooting suspected drug dealers Hugh and Jacqueline McGeough in their Craigavon home last March.

They were remanded by a district judge in Lisburn Magistrates' Court. The defendants' addresses were given as HMP Maghaberry, Co Antrim.

Mr and Mrs McGeough were found dead in their home at Legahory Court. Mr McGeough had been shot once and his wife three times.

The two accused have also been charged with firearms offences.

A 19-year-old man arrested as part of the murder probe earlier this week has been released pending a report to prosecutors.
