Adam Lee Hall

Jim Levulis / WAMC

In separate trials over the past seven months, three men have been found guilty and sentenced to life in prison without parole in the kidnappings and murders of three Berkshire County men. Juries in Hampden Superior Court found Adam Lee Hall, David Chalue and Caius Veiovis guilty of murdering David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell. The three men disappeared from a Pittsfield apartment in August 2011. Their dismembered bodies were found in a trench two weeks later in Becket.

WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief Jim Levulis spoke with Andrew Amelinckx who covered all three trials for The Berkshire Eagle.

A Hampden Superior Court jury convicted 47 year-old David Chalue of North Adams on all nine counts on Friday – three counts each of murder, witness intimidation and kidnapping.

The verdict appeared to be reached Thursday afternoon, but when jurors were individually polled, one woman said she had not come to that decision.

The jury is now deliberating in the case of a North Adams man charged with helping kill three Pittsfield men.

Prosecutors say 47-year-old David Chalue was one of three men who carried out the killings in August 2011 of David Glasser, Robert Chadwell and Edward Frampton. Chalue has pleaded not guilty to three counts of murder and other charges.

The Hampden Superior Court jury resumed deliberations Tuesday after starting Monday.

Chalue's lawyer said in closing statements that the prosecution's case is built largely on unreliable jailhouse informants.

The lawyer for the second man facing trial in a Berkshire County triple slaying has asked a judge to dismiss as evidence several statements made by jailhouse informants he says are "irrelevant and unduly prejudicial."

David Chalue, of North Adams, is charged with helping kidnap and kill David Glasser, Robert Chadwell and Edward Frampton, all of Pittsfield, in August 2011.

The 47-year-old Chalue, who pleaded not guilty, is scheduled for trial April 22 in Hampden Superior Court.

The trails of the remaining suspects in the murders of three Berkshire County men will be held in Hampden County. David Chalue and Caius Veiovis are charged with helping Adam Lee Hall kidnap and kill David Glasser, Robert Chadwell and Edward Frampton, all of Pittsfield, in August 2011.

Last month, a jury in Springfield convicted Hall of three counts of first-degree murder and he was sentenced to life in prison without parole. Chalue’s attorney argued that the publicity during that trial makes it impossible for his client to get a fair trial in front of a Hampden County jury.

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.

A second suspect in a Berkshire County triple slaying is scheduled to go on trial in April.

The trial of David Chalue was scheduled for April 22 at a court hearing on Monday, but exactly where it will be held remains to be determined.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that Chalue's lawyer argued that because of massive publicity about the case in Berkshire and Hampden counties, the trial should be moved to Hampshire or Worcester county.

The judge did not immediately rule.
