SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – For the third full day, a Hampden Superior Court jury discussed the evidence and charges against triple murder suspect Caius Veiovis. The jury began deliberating on Friday, where they discussed the case for two hours following closing statements. They picked up their deliberations on Monday, and continued through Tuesday without a verdict.
Veiovis is the third man to be put on trial for the 2011 killings of David Glasser, Edward Frampton, and Robert Chadwell. The first two suspects, Adam Lee Hall and David Chalue, were both found guilty and given three life sentences.
Prosecutors say that Veiovis wanted to impress Hall, who was a high-ranking member of the Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang. Hall allegedly wanted Glasser killed to prevent him from testifying against him in assault case, while the two other men were killed to eliminate any witnesses. Their bodies were found on private property in Becket.
Veiovis’s defense lawyer says that there is no physical evidence to tie his client to the killings, and that there is no evidence he was even with Hall and Chalue at the time.
The trials of all three men had been moved from Pittsfield to Springfield due to the large amount of publicity the case received in the Berkshires.
22News will be in Hampden Superior Court on Thursday, and will bring you the verdict on air and here on WWLP.com as soon as it comes in.
