Trial underway for 'Hell's Angel' accused of murder

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) -- The trial of a Hells Angels motorcycle club member charged with the killings of three Pittsfield men is getting started.

Opening statements in the trial of Adam Lee Hall of Peru, Mass., are scheduled for Monday in Hampden Superior Court.

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 an unrelated assault case. Prosecutors say the others were killed to eliminate witnesses.

Hall, who has denied involvement in the slayings of the victims whose dismembered remains were found days later in Becket, is the first suspect to face trial.

The trial is in Hampden County because of the publicity the case received in Berkshire County.
