SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - There is still no verdict in the case against Adam Lee Hall.

He's one of three men accused in a Berkshire County triple homicide in 2011.

Hall has been waiting to learn his fate since deliberations started Monday in Springfield.

The jury deliberated all day. They came back in after having a day off on Wednesday because of the snow storm, trying to figure out the whether or not Adam Lee Hall committed what the Berkshire district attorney calls "depraved, hateful attacks".

Hall, a former member of a Berkshire County motorcycle club, is facing 19 charges. He's accused of kidnapping, killing and dismembering three people back in the summer of 2011 in Pittsfield.

The bodies of the victims, David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell were later discovered in Becket. The prosecution says the killing was to keep Glasser from testifying in a previous case where Hall was facing assault charges. They say the other two victims were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Hall's attorney points out there's no physical evidence, DNA or weapons found that link his client to the crime. He said the witnesses for the prosecution are facing charges themselves and that some are Hall's co-defendants and would do anything to get leniency.

Hall's two co-defendants Caious Veovus and David Chalue will be tried separately.

The nine women and three men jury only asked for two questions so far. One was the definition of “damage” as it relates to the case. The other one was for a map of where the alleged crime took place.

The jury expects to resume deliberations on Friday.
