Thomas O'Hare, 33, and his 21-year-old partner Lisa McClatchey were doused in petrol and set on fire by a gang of men at their home in Foley Road close to Keady in November 2006.
Brothers Martin Smith, 40, from Kevlin Glen in Omagh and 37-year-old Niall Smith of Mourneview, Mowhan in Armagh are charged with the attack.
The brothers were arrested by Gardaí from the extradition unit at addresses in Dundalk Co Louth and Balbriggan in Co Dublin.
Both face two charges of murder and one of arson.
At a Dublin court on Wednesday, Sergeant Martin O'Neill said when he asked Martin Smith if he knew what the arrest was about, Smith shook his head.
Sergeant Jim Kirwan, who arrested Niall Smith, said the accused told him, "I don't want to say something about that to Gardaí until I speak to my solicitor."
Both men were remanded in custody to appear before Judge John Edwards next week when their lawyers are expected to indicate whether they will contest the extradition bid by the PSNI.
