Man Wanted For Death of Wife And Daughter Found In Native England

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) - A district attorney in Massachusetts says the pressure of mounting financial problems may have been what prompted Neil Entwistle to allegedly kill his wife and baby daughter last month.

Middlesex County District Attorney Martha Coakley says the deaths may have been intended as a murder-suicide, but the suspect instead fled to his native England.

Coakley tells a news conference Entwistle is in custody in London after his arrest at a subway station. The arrest follows a U.S. request for extradition. Coakley says there's no timetable for his return.

Coakley says Entwistle apparently moved to the U.S. to escape financial difficulties at home. She says he tried unsuccessfully to start several internet-based businesses in the U.S.

She says the gun used in the killings belonged to the suspect's father-in-law.
