    Lawyers Say Man Accused in Hospital Shooting Was Delusional

    Lawyers for a man accused of killing his mother in a New Hampshire hospital intensive care unit say the man suffered from "delusional beliefs,'' and they may seek an insanity defense.

    Valley News reports lawyers for 49-year-old Travis Frink wrote in court documents that he told police he was taken from the womb of his birth mother and subjected to a "sadistic scientific experiment.''

    Frink also told police he had not taken any medication and had not slept in a long time before the September 2017 shooting that killed 70-year-old Pamela Ferriere.

    Authorities say Frink shot his mother multiple times at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
