Briton remanded over US family shooting deaths

A British man was remanded in custody tonight on charges of killing his American wife and baby daughter in what detectives say may have been a failed murder-suicide bid.

Neil Entwistle, who was arrested in London earlier today, is accused of shooting his wife Rachel in the head before turning the .22-calibre handgun on nine-month-old Lillian in a bed at their home in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, three weeks ago.

The unemployed computer programmer, who left the US a day after the killings to stay with his parents in Worksop, Notts, appeared at Bow Street Magistrates Court tonight for the start of the process to extradite him to America.
