SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP-AP) – Closing arguments have finished in the triple murder trial of a member of the Hell’s Angels motorcycle club accused of killing three other men.

The defense and prosecutors made their final statements in the Adam Lee Hall murder trial at Hampden Superior Court in Springfield.

Hall, of Peru, Mass., and two other men are charged with fatally shooting David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell in Pittsfield in August 2011. Prosecutors say Hall wanted Glasser dead so he couldn’t testify against him in an unrelated assault case, and the others were killed to eliminate witnesses.

Hall did not take the stand in the nearly four-week trial. His lawyer says there’s no physical evidence tying Hall to the deaths.

The other men who allegedly helped Hall, Caius Veiovis and David Chalue, face trial later this year.
