Man pleads not guilty to killing his mother at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center

The man police say shot and killed his 70-year-old mother in the intensive care unit of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H., pleaded not guilty Wednesday, according to CBS Boston.

The incident, which occurred on the hospital's fourth floor at approximately 2 p.m. Tuesday, left the academic medical center issuing a Code Silver alert, evacuating ambulatory patients and staff, and going into lockdown, according to Dartmouth-Hitchcock spokesperson Mike Barwell.

Police apprehended the suspect, 48-year-old Travis Frink, by 2:49 p.m. Tuesday. He is charged with first-degree murder.

The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office released the results of the victim's autopsy Wednesday, which found she died of blood loss from four gunshot wounds, according to the Valley News.

Following his appearance in Grafton Superior Court on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Frink was ordered held without bail, according to the Valley News.
