A ranking member of the Hells Angels motorcycle club from western Massachusetts has been convicted of killing three Pittsfield men.
A Hampden Superior Court jury on Friday found Adam Lee Hall guilty on three counts of murder and other charges.
Hall, of Peru, Mass., and two other men were charged with fatally shooting David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell in August 2011 and disposing of the bodies in Becket. Prosecutors say Hall wanted Glasser dead so he couldn't testify against him in an unrelated assault case, and the others were killed to eliminate witnesses. A fourth man is charged for allegedly helping bury the dismembered bodies.
The defense said at trial that there's no physical evidence linking Hall to the killings.
Hall was the first to face trial.
