WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE) — A Warwick man accused of shooting and killing his mother in her hospital bed is expected to be arraigned in New Hampshire later Wednesday afternoon.

ABC6 News received the affidavit out of New Hampshire, which details what happened when 49-year-old Travis Frink walked into his 70-year-old mother’s hospital room. 

ABC6 learned that his mother Pamela Ferrier was in the ICU at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center after suffering an aneurism.

Ferrier was supposed to be released on Friday.

Police say Frink went to the hospital around 1 p.m. Tuesday. He went up to his mother’s hospital room where his step-father was and asked him for some alone time with his mother.

The moment his step-father left the room, deadly shots rung out.

Officials do not know what motivated this but say his intentions were clear.

“The facts gathered to this point reveal that the purpose of Mr. Frink's visit to that hospital was to kill his mother,” said New Hampshire Attorney General, Gordon MacDonald.

Neighbors on Hoxsie Avenue say Frink lived with his two sons.

Warwick police conducted a well-being check here Tuesday night and his children were moved elsewhere.

Again, Frink is expected to face a judge in about an hour and is charged with first degree murder.
