PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A judge has set a tentative trial date for early next year for three men charged in a Pittsfield triple slaying.
A Berkshire Superior Court judge on Wednesday set a Jan. 7 start for the murder trial of Adam Lee Hall, David Chalue and Caius Veiovis.
They are charged with killing David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell in August 2011. Prosecutors say Glasser was killed so he could not testify against Hall, a member of the Hells Angels, in a court case. Prosecutors say the others were killed to eliminate witnesses.
The defendants have pleaded not guilty.
The Berkshire Eagle reports that lawyers for Chalue and Veiovis asked that charges be dismissed because of a lack of evidence. The judge did not immediately rule.
