A British man killed his American wife and baby daughter in what was believed to be a failed murder-suicide bid, US authorities said.
Neil Entwistle is accused of shooting his wife in the head before turning the gun on his nine-month-old daughter Lillian at their rented home in Hopkinton, Massachusetts on January 22.
Entwistle (27) was arrested in London on behalf of officers probing the double killing.
The unemployed computer programmer, who is thought to have fled the US before the bodies of his wife Rachel and baby daughter were found, will appear before Bow Street Magistrates in London for an extradition hearing to the US, Scotland Yard said.

Mr Denham, who is also company secretary at engineering group GKN, said: "We have huge pressures on our transport system, not just road but rail as well."
