The US Supreme Court will not hear the appeal of Neil Entwistle, the Hopkinton man who was convicted of killing his wife and 9-month-old daughter. The court published a list on its website Monday of cases it declined to hear and the Entwistle case was one of them. Entwistle’s wife, ­Rachel, and daughter, Lillian, were found shot to death in the master bedroom of their Hopkinton home on Jan. 22, 2006. Entwistle was convicted in 2008, and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court upheld the conviction in August. Among other things, Entwistle challenged two warrantless searches of the home made by police.
