David McIlwaine and Andrew Robb were killed in February 2000
A 28-year-old man has appeared in court accused of murdering two County Armagh teenagers in February 2000.
Steven Leslie Brown, also known as Stephen Revels, is standing trial for the murders of Portadown teenagers Andrew Robb and David McIlwaine.
Belfast Crown Court was told on Tuesday that they were killed outside Tandragee after Andrew Robb made a remark about murdered UVF leader Richard Jameson.
Mr Brown, of Castle Place in Castlecaulfield, denies the murders.
Andrew Robb, 19, and 18-year-old David McIlwaine were driven to an isolated road where they were repeatedly stabbed. They had earlier been at a disco in Tandragee.
A prosecution lawyer, Gordon Kerr QC, said that much of the evidence against Mr Brown comes from Mark Burcombe, who was present when the teenagers were killed.

Burcombe, from the Ballynahinch Road in Lisburn, was initially charged with the murders, but pleaded guilty to conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm to Andrew Robb.
He was jailed earlier this year for two-and-a-half-years.
