CHESTERVILLE — A murderer from New Hampshire was arrested Wednesday and charged with moving to the area in violation of his parole.

The man, Barry Brown, 50, was staying at a residence on Horseshoe Pond Road without the prior permission of his parole officer to switch residences, according to a news release from Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols.

The sheriff’s department learned Brown was at the residence from his parole officer, Troy Sterry, said Nichols.

Brown had made a request with his parole officer to move to Chesterville, but Sterry had yet to conduct a site review and grant approval, Nichols said.

Brown was taken into custody at the Chesterville residence without incident, Nichols said.

Also according to Nichols, Brown was convicted in 1983 of first degree murder and burglary.

Nichols did not have additional information about Brown. Calls to the New Hampshire probation and parole office were not immediately returned.

Brown faces a charge of violation of interstate compact for adult supervision, which is a class D crime.
