Jury in man’s triple slaying trial selected
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Jury selection in the trial of a North Adams man charged with helping to kill three Pittsfield men has been completed.
Opening statements in 47-year-old David Chalue’s (shuh-LOOZ’) trial are scheduled to take place Friday in Hampden Superior Court after the selection of 12 jurors and four alternates was completed Wednesday. No court proceedings in the case are scheduled for Thursday.
Prosecutors say Chalue was one of three men who carried out the killings in August 2011 of David Glasser, Robert Chadwell and Edward Frampton. He has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges.
The trial is being held in Hampden County because of the heavy media coverage the case received in Berkshire County.
One man has already been convicted in the case. A third murder suspect awaits trial.
