(Newser) – Neil Entwistle, the Briton accused of murdering his wife and baby in a Boston suburb in 2006, requested that the bodies be buried “the way I left them,” according to his stepfather-in-law. Joseph Matterazzo, 61, testified yesterday a “wimpering” Entwistle called and asked him to “bury them side by side because that’s the way I left them … I mean, found them.”

It is Matterazzo’s gun that Entwistle allegedly used to kill his 27-year-old wife and 9-month-old daughter, AFP notes. Matterazzo used to take Entwistle shooting at the firing range, and testified that one of the four sets of keys to his guns was missing at the time of the murders. “I liked him a lot,” Matterazo said. “He was a member of the family.”
