(Springfield, MA) — Jury selection is underway for one of three defendants in the Berkshire County Hells Angel triple murder case. Adam Lee Hall was a member of the motorcycle gang when he and two others allegedly kidnapped three men from Pittsfield and murdered them at the height of Hurricane Irene in August 2011. The mens’ bodies were found in a shallow grave in the town of Becket. Hall is being defended by Northampton lawyer Alan Black and prosecuted by Berkshire DA David Capeless. The trial is being held in Hampden County because of the publicity surrounding the case.
