SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Berkshire County's top prosecutor has described the torture and killing of three Pittsfield men in his opening statement at the murder trial of a Hells Angels motorcycle club member.
The trial of a Hells Angels motorcycle club member charged with the killings of three Pittsfield, Massachusetts men is getting started.
Opening statements in the trial of Adam Lee Hall of Peru, Mass., are scheduled for Monday in Hampden Superior Court.
The 36-year-old Hall and two other men are charged with shooting David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell in Pittsfield in 2011. Authorities say Hall wanted Glasser dead so he couldn't testify against him in an unrelated assault case. Prosecutors say the others were killed to eliminate witnesses.
PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — The lawyer for one of three men charged with a Berkshire County triple slaying has asked a judge to move his client's trial out of the county because "incessant" and "inflammatory" media coverage has "impaired" the ability to get a fair trial.
