With 30 Hours Behind Them, Jurors In Veiovis Trial Without A Decision

Berkshire District Attorney's Office

After more than four full days of deliberation there is still no verdict in the last of three separate trials that have captivated the region involving the murders of three Berkshire County men.The Hampden Superior Court jury has deliberated for about 30 hours over five days and will continue Friday. Thirty-four-year-old Caius Veiovis has pleaded not guilty to charges connected to the murders of David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell. The men disappeared from a Pittsfield apartment in August 2011. Their dismembered bodies were found two weeks later in Becket.

Defense lawyers say there is no scientific evidence linking Veivois to the murders. Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless says there is enough evidence for a conviction.

In separate trials earlier this year, Adam Lee Hall and David Chalue were convicted and sentenced to life in prison for their roles in the killings.

The jury was out for 30 hours in Chalue’s trial, but just 17 in Hall’s.
