Judge OK’s Hells Angels Label

(Springfield, MA) — A judge has ruled that Berkshire triple-murder suspect Adam Lee Hall may be referred to as a “ranking member of the Hells Angels.” In Hampden Superior Court Thursday, lawyer Alan Black argued the jury should only hear that Hall was a motorcycle club member. Judge Jeffrey Kinder sided with Berkshire DA David Capeless, who said Hall deeply identified with his gang membership. Hall is one of three men accused of kidnapping and killing three others in August 2011 and burying their bodies in Becket. The Berkshire County case is currently being tried in Springfield.
