Berkshire County District Attorney David Capeless announced Thursday he will run for reelection in November.

Capeless says the recent guilty verdicts and subsequent life sentencing of Adam Lee Hall for the gruesome murders of three Berkshire County men in 2011 will help his run for another four-year term.

“I do hope that they do realize that I’m the face of the prosecution here, but there are so many, many more people who have worked equally hard on this and should be congratulated along with me,” said Capeless.

Capeless was appointed as the county’s interim DA in 2004 by then Governor Mitt Romney after the death of Gerard Downing. Capeless won his first full term in 2006, followed by an unopposed run in 2010.
