Annual Softball Tournament for Farmington, NH Murder Victims Coming Up
A softball tournament held in the name of one of the two women killed during a grisly double murder in Farmington will be taking place on Saturday in Barrington.
The Jenna M. Pellegrini Memorial Softball Tournament is held each August at the BYA Complex in Barrington. Pellegrini grew up playing softball on these fields and eventually was on Dover High School's team.
Pellegrini was 32 years old when she was killed on Jan. 27, 2017.
Pellegrini was staying with a friend, Christine Sullivan, 48, at a house at 979 Meaderbroro Road in Farmington when she was stabbed to death.
Sullivan was also stabbed to death at the house she shared with boyfriend Dean Smoronk. Timothy Verrill, 38, is charged with the murders and is being held in jail.
Michael Pellegrini, Jenna's father, organizes the tournament every year. He said they use the money they raise to support organizations that help people get out of domestically abusive relationships and those who have drug misuse problems.
"We do it to help the charities, obviously to help out and to spread the word about the dangers of drug addiction and domestic violence," Micheal Pellegrini said.
Last year, over $5,000 was raised for the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, HAVEN and SOS Recovery.
