Continue reading below

A lawyer for Neil Entwistle, the Hopkinton man convicted of killing his wife and 9-month-old daughter in 2006, has asked the US Supreme Court to review his client’s 2008 conviction. Springfield attorney Stephen Paul Maidman filed a writ of certiorari, or request for review, with the Supreme Court on Nov. 8, 2012. The high court is scheduled to consider the request Jan. 11. Maidman also filed documents seeking a waiver of court fees for Entwistle. Maidman did not immediately respond to requests for comment Thursday evening. Entwistle’s wife, Rachel, and daughter, Lillian, were found fatally shot in the master bedroom of their Hopkinton home on Jan. 22, 2006. Entwistle was charged and extradited from Britain, where he had fled on Jan. 21. He was convicted in Middlesex Superior Court on two counts of first-degree murder.
