DOVER, N.H. — A grand jury has indicted a man on two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of reckless second-degree murder in the stabbing deaths of two women in New Hampshire in January.

The first-degree murder counts are new for Timothy Verrill, of Dover, who was arraigned in February and had pleaded not guilty in the deaths of 48-year-old Christine Sullivan and 32-year-old Jenna Pellegrini. They were found dead in a home in Farmington. Sullivan lived there with her boyfriend and Pellegrini was moving in.

A judge in September denied a bail hearing for Verrill, saying the state has strong evidence against him.

Verrill also was indicted on five counts of falsifying physical evidence in connection with the deaths.
