SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A jury has been selected for the trial of a ranking member of the Hells Angels motorcycle club charged with killing three Pittsfield men.
The Berkshire Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1iWPep6) that 10 women and seven men have been chosen Thursday for the case of Adam Lee Hall of Peru, Mass. Five are alternates.
Hall faces murder and other charges. He has denied playing a role in the killings.
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 another case. Prosecutors say the others were killed to eliminate witnesses.
The trial is held in Hampden Superior Court because of the publicity the case received in Berkshire County.
Opening statements are scheduled Monday.
