Convicted killer Neil Entwistle seeks Supreme Court review

A former Worksop man convicted of murdering his wife and baby girl at their American home is making his final appeal for freedom to the US Supreme Court.

Neil Entwistle, now serving two life terms without parole in a Bridgewater jail, will have his case go before the high court in a conference in Washington this Friday.

Entwistle was convicted in 2008 of shooting his wife and baby daughter to death in their Hopkinton home, Massachusetts, in 2006. He fled to England after the murders.

He previously appealed his conviction to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. That appeal was denied in August last year.
