POLICE divers have been hunting for the weapon used to kill a teenager in Marsden.
The West Yorkshire underwater search team were in the village yesterday, searching the River Colne, Huddersfield Narrow Canal and drains.
And it is believed they were looking for a knife used in a fatal stabbing on Saturday.
The search came as two men appeared in court in Huddersfield.
Both were charged following the double stabbing of Craig Hepburn, 18, and Connor Paton, 19, both from Linwood, Paisley.
The murder investigation was launched on Saturday after Mr Hepburn died from his injuries at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
Connor, 18, has now returned home after undergoing emergency surgery in Huddersfield.
Yesterday the murder investigation continued with officers spending several hours at the scene.
Police divers could be seen in the River Colne and a tributary off Manchester Road in an attempt to locate a weapon used in the murder.
After the river search officers then moved to the surrounding streets and dredged drains.
On Sunday woods near the scene were combed and CCTV has been gathered from nearby premises.
Two men arrested shortly after the incident appeared in court yesterday after they were charged on Sunday.
Anthony Driver, 36, of Grange Cottage, Marsden, and Luke Elliott, 21, of Main Avenue, Cowlersley, were both charged with the murder of Craig Hepburn and the attempted murder of Connor Paton.
They appeared briefly at separate hearings at Kirklees Magistrates Court sitting in Huddersfield.
Prosecuting Vanessa Schofield told the magistrates in both cases: “Due to the nature of the charges both matters must be dealt with at Crown Court.”
Chairman of the bench, Magistrate Barry Bedford, told both the defendants: “You have heard what has been said. Your case will be sent to Leeds Crown Court on July 11.”
No applications were made for bail.
The Scottish teenagers had been visiting Craig’s uncle Scott Hepburn in Marsden when they were attacked in the early hours of Saturday morning on their way back to his house.
The murder has shocked the tight-knit community of Marsden who have been deeply saddened by the attack.
Floral tributes could be seen yesterday at the side of Manchester Road.
A Rangers football shirt, had also been left neatly folded amongst the flowers.
Craig had been working as a barman at the local bowling club in his home town of Linwood while training to become a nurse at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, Paisley.
Detectives investigating the murder previously urged witnesses to contact them and a number have since come forward.
Det Supt Paul Taylor, who is leading the enquiry, told the Examiner he had visited Marsden and a number of people had told them information.
A police spokesman said: “Police divers have been searching the Huddersfield canal near to Manchester Road yesterday where the incident took place.”
He said inquires are ongoing and urged any witnesses to contact police on 101.
