Berkshire Eagle Reporter Reflects On Berkshire Triple Murder Trials
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.In Massachusetts, first-degree murder convictions are automatically appealed to the Supreme Judicial Court and can take anywhere from two to three years.
A fourth man, David Casey, who testified against Adam Lee Hall and David Chalue and was mentioned during the interview, was held by authorities from 2011 until May after testifying in Chalue's trial. He is believed to be an accessory to the crimes. No trial date has been set in his case.
