Jury selection is underway in the trial of David Chalue.
He's accused of taking part in a triple homicide in Berkshire County.
Prosecutors say Chalue was one of three men who carried out the crimes in August 2011, killing David Glasser, Robert Chadwell and Edward Frampton.
Prosecutors also say Adam Lee Hall, who has already been convicted, wanted Glasser dead so he couldn't testify against him in an unrelated case, while the others were killed to eliminate witnesses. Hall was sentenced to three life sentences, to be served consecutively, plus 42 additional years.
The trial is being held in Hampden County because of the heavy media coverage the case received in Berkshire County.
The trial for Caius Veiovis, the third man facing charges for his alleged role in the murders, is scheduled for early September.
