Fate of Neil Entwistle in Hands of Jury

A Middlesex Superior Court jury is set to begin deliberations this morning in the murder case against Neil Entwistle.

The British man is accused of the January 2006 fatal shootings of his wife, Rachel and 9-month-old daughter Lillian Rose in the family's rented Hopkinton home.

The defense rested its case yesterday without calling a single witness.

In his closing argument to the jury, defense attorney Elliot Weinstein said Rachel Entwistle shot the baby and committed suicide, and that Neil Entwistle covered up his wife's actions to "protect her honor."

But a prosecutor said the murder-suicide theory "doesn't make common sense."

Michael Fabbri urged the jury to consider evidence that pointed to "the two sides of Neil Entwistle," including his visits to Internet sex sites in the days and weeks before the killings.
