Teenager charged with murders

funeral
Hundreds of mourners attended the men's funerals


A 19-year-old has appeared in court charged with the murders of two teenagers whose bodies were found on an isolated road in Northern Ireland.

Steven Leslie Revels, a process operator from Sinton Park, Tandragee in County Armagh has appeared at a special sitting of Armagh Magistrates' Court.

He is denying two charges of murder.

The stabbed bodies of Andrew Robb, 19, and David McIlwaine, 18, both from Portadown, were found on a country lane near Tandragee eight days ago.

The court heard that police had forensic evidence to link Mr Revels to the killings.

It was said that when charged, the defendant replied: "No definitely not, I wasn't involved in any of them."

Mr Revels was remanded in custody to appear in court on March 8.

The bodies of the teenagers, who were both from Portadown in County Armagh, were discovered by a woman taking her children to a dancing class.

Hundreds of people attended their funerals last week.
