Neil Entwisle, the Hopkinton resident charged with murdering his wife and young daughter, is being evaluated at a state psychiatric hospital after leaving what has been termed a "depressive" letter.
The letter included instructions for burial but did not suggest Entwisle was going to commit suicide, according to Middlesex Sheriff James DiPaola. The Associated Press reports that the letter came not long after Entwisle's request to be confined to his parents' home was denied.
Entwisle is facing the possibility of life without parole should he be convicted in the two slayings. A hearing in the case is scheduled for Jan. 21.
