PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) – A judge has ordered a member of the Hells Angels motorcycle club as well as two other men named as suspects in a triple slaying in Berkshire County to provide DNA samples to investigators.
The Superior Court judge on Wednesday ordered Adam Lee Hall, David Chalue and Caius Veiovis, to submit to cheek swabs and hair samples.
The men are accused of killing David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell last August and burying the bodies in Becket.
Authorities say Hall, a Hells Angel, and the others suspects killed Glasser and his friends to stop Glasser testifying against Hall in an assault case.
Defense attorneys argued against the DNA collection. The Berkshire Eagle reports that the judge ordered lawyers for the defendants present during collection. They have pleaded not guilty.
