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

In addition to the murder convictions, Verrill faced sentencing on five class B felony counts of falsifying physical evidence related to his attempts to conceal and destroy evidence of the murders.

Formella also expressed gratitude to the trial team, the Farmington and Dover Police Departments, and the New Hampshire State Police for their roles in securing the conviction and thanked them for their dedication to justice.

The sentencing is intended to provide closure to the victims’ families and reinforce the community’s trust in the legal system to uphold justice.
