NORTH HAVERHILL, N.H. — A man has been indicted on charges he deliberately killed his 70-year-old mother in her room at a New Hampshire hospital intensive care unit.

A Grafton County grand jury last week indicted 49-year-old Travis Frink, of Warwick, Rhode Island, on a first-degree murder charge. It alleges he purposely caused the death of Pamela Ferriere by shooting her multiple times at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon on Sept. 12.

The grand jury also indicted Frink on a charge of second-degree murder, alleging he caused his mother’s death recklessly and manifested an extreme indifference to the value of human life.

Frink pleaded not guilty at his initial court appearance and was held without bail. Messages were left Wednesday seeking comment from his attorney.

Ferriere was from Groton and was shot four times.
