Mass. Man Gets 3 Life Terms In Triple Slaying


A ranking member of a western Massachusetts chapter of the Hells Angels has been sentenced to three consecutive life terms for killing three men, then dismembering and burying the bodies.

Adam Lee Hall of Peru, Mass., was sentenced Monday in Hampden Superior Court after being convicted Friday of first-degree murder in the deaths of David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell in August 2011.

A judge Monday called the slayings "filled with depravity and disregard for human dignity."

Prosecutors say Hall wanted Glasser dead so he couldn't testify against him in an assault case. The others were killed to eliminate witnesses.

Hall's lawyer said there was no physical evidence tying his client to the deaths. He has not commented on the verdict.

Two others face murder charges in the case.
