1 min read

CONCORD — Timothy Verrill was sentenced today for the second-degree murders of Christine Sullivan and Jenna Pellegrini, who were killed on Jan. 27, 2017, according to New Hampshire Attorney General John M. Formella and New Hampshire State Police Colonel Mark Hall.

In a statement following the sentencing, Formella expressed that the life sentences handed down to Verrill reflect the “heinous nature” of his crimes and serve as a stark message against such acts.

The court imposed consecutive sentences of 45 years to life for each murder conviction, and an additional consecutive sentence of 3 ½ to 7 years for Verrill’s five class B felony counts of falsifying physical evidence, aimed at concealing and destroying evidence of the murders.

Verrill’s convictions were the result of a trial that concluded on April 9 in Strafford County Superior Court.

Formella also acknowledged the efforts of the legal and law enforcement teams involved in securing the conviction and sentencing of Verrill.

Commending the diligence and professionalism of the trial team and the supportive role of law enforcement, including the Farmington and Dover Police Departments and the New Hampshire State Police, Formella expressed hope that the verdict would bring some measure of solace to the victims’ families and reinforce public trust in the legal system’s ability to deliver justice.
