From the Boston Globe:

Neil Entwistle was arrested this morning on charges of murdering his wife and infant daughter in their rented Hopkinton home.

They must've found something.

Entwistle, 27, was taken into custody at 7 a.m. EST in England on two counts of murder and charges of illegal possession of a handgun and illegal possession of ammunition, prosecutors said.

What? He didn't have a valid License to Carry a Firearm???


UPDATE: Live blogging the DA's 10:00 press conference in the comments.
