SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) – A judge has ruled that the trial of a second suspect in the slayings of three Berkshire County men will be held in Hampden County.

A lawyer for 46-year-old David Chalue had asked that his client’s trial be held outside both Berkshire and Hampden counties because of extensive media coverage of the case that would make it impossible to find an impartial jury.

A judge ruled Tuesday that Chalue could get a fair trial in Hampden County.

Chalue, of North Adams, is charged with helping Adam Lee Hall kidnap and kill David Glasser, Robert Chadwell and Edward Frampton, all of Pittsfield, in August 2011.

Hall was convicted last month of three counts of first-degree murder.

Chalue, who pleaded not guilty, is scheduled for trial April 22 in Hampden Superior Court.
