Entwistle pleads not guilty to murders

The lawyer for Neil Entwistle has entered a plea of not guilty Thursday to first-degree murder in the deaths of his wife and infant daughter.

Entwistle, handcuffed and in leg shackles, was escorted by law enforcement officers from a small jet after it arrived from England Wednesday at an Air Force base outside Boston. He was driven to the police station in suburban Hopkinton for booking.

Entwistle is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of his wife, Rachel, 27, and 9-month-old daughter Lillian on Jan. 20.

Entwistle’s lawyer, Elliot M. Weinstein, met with him at the police station Wednesday night. He said he was concerned that the case has generated such media interest that it would be difficult for Entwistle to get a fair trial. Entwistle plans to plead not guilty, his attorney said.
