LEBANON, NH — Travis Frink, 48, of Warwick, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the Sept. 12, 2017 shooting murder of his mother, Pamela Ferriere, 70, at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire, which the state’s Superior Court accepted Tuesday.

As a result of the plea, the state has stipulated that Frink will be committed to a secure psychiatric unit for five years.

Frink was visiting his mother when he asked his step-father for privacy with her, then used a gun to fire several shots at her, killing her, according to a Lebanon, NH Circuit Court affidavit. NH police later arrested Frink, charging him with one count of first-degree murder. The state later added a charge of second-degree murder in the case.

Frink pleaded not guilty to the charge on Sept. 13 in Grafton County Superior Court in North Haverhill, N.H., according to a report from the Boston Herald, which photographed Frink’s court appearance.
