WOBURN, Mass. – Jurors in the trial of a British man accused of killing his wife and baby daughter were shown the bloody pajamas the worn by the victim on the night of the gruesome murder.
Neil Entwistle is charged in the January 2006 shootings of his 27-year-old wife, Rachel, and their 9-month-old daughter, Lillian Rose.
In trial Monday, a state police chemist, Deanna Dygan, identified a blood-covered undershirt and polka dot sleeper worn by the baby, and the nightshirt worn by Rachel Entwistle. Neil Entwistle averted his eyes when jurors were shown the bloodied pajamas. His mother, Yvonne, sobbed. Rachel Entwistle's mother and stepfather held hands.
Dygan said she determined that the gunshot to Lillian's chest was a "contact shot," with the gun pressed directly against the target.
