A man serving a life sentence in America for killing his wife and baby daughter has lost an appeal against his conviction.

Neil Entwistle from Worksop in Nottinghamshire was jailed for shooting dead his wife Rachel and their nine month old daughter Lillian.

His lawyers argued for a new trial, claiming evidence taken from their home in Massachusetts was seized illegally

The Supreme Judicial Court said

“None of the defendant’s claims on appeal warrants reversal of the convictions. We have reviewed the entire trial record ... and conclude that the defendant received a fair trial that was ably tried and judged.”
