Two children are likely to testify in the case of a plasterer accused of murdering a Melbourne couple, a court has heard.

Mustafa Kunduraci, 44, is charged with murdering Gregory Tucker, 54, and Korinne Aylward, 35, at their Moonee Ponds home in December 2013.

Police found the couple dead with their three children - aged between two and five - unharmed in another room.

The Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday heard up that to 17 witnesses could be called during committal proceedings in November, including two aged under 18, and two forensic experts.

The minors would appear remotely via video link, the court heard.

Kunduraci, of Meadow Heights, will need a Turkish interpreter during the three-day hearing which will start on November 5.

A previous hearing heard the couple was stabbed after an argument over a debt for plaster work Kunduraci had done at their home.

Kunduraci has been remanded in custody.
