A 66-year-old man has appeared in court in Co Armagh charged with murdering two women.
Leslie Ross of Meganlis Park, Dromore in Co Down, was charged with the murder of 47-year-old Michelle Bickerstaff in April last year and the murder of Margaret Weise, 50, in August 2007.
He is also charged with indecently assaulting a woman and with committing an act of gross indecency with a child.
Defence lawyer Conleth Downey told the court his client vehemently denied the charges during three days of questioning.
Mr Ross was remanded in custody to appear before Banbridge District Court via video link on 19 September.
An application for bail will be made at a later date.
