Accused searched net for ways to kill

BRITON Neil Entwistle searched the internet for the “best” way to kill someone just four days before his American wife and baby daughter were murdered, a court was told yesterday.

Detective Lawrence James showed the jury a diagram recovered from the internet history of Entwistle’s laptop which showed the major human arteries and a number of “strike points” in the chest.

The 29-year-old former IT worker denies killing his 27-year-old wife Rachel and nine-month-old daughter Lillian Rose at their home in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, on January 20 2006.

Mr James, a computer specialist, said the diagram of the major arteries was on a website.

The diagram, which was found following an internet search for “how to kill with a knife”, was accessed shortly after 11.30pm on January 16, said Mr James.

Entwistle faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted of the double murder.
