Berkshire Murder Final Chapter

September 9, 2014

All Posts, News

Trial is underway for Caius Veiovis, the most self-dramatizing of the defendants in the sordid, triple murder of three Pittsfield, Massachusetts men in 2011. The defendant pronounces his unique name KYE-us VAY-oh-veese.

The local paper, the Berkshire Eagle, has been calling the case the “Hells Angels Triple Murder.” The prosecutor in Veiovis trial has continued to beat that oil can – presumably because without invoking the name of the Hells Angels a self-described vampire and Satan worshipping lunatic with 666 tattooed on his face and six implanted devil’s horns is just not scary enough.

Veiovis was born Roy C. Gutfinski Jr. He changed his name while incarcerated at the Maine State Prison in Warren following a probation violation. The defendant allegedly slashed a 16-year-old girl’s back in Augusta, Maine in 1999 and drank her blood.

Veiovis was charged in 2006 with kidnapping after he allegedly held two strippers employed by the Foxy Lady South Coast in New Bedford, Massachusetts against their will in his motel room while he took off his clothes and snorted cocaine. The kidnapping charge was dropped by local police but Veiovis was charged with the probation violation after Maine officials learned that marijuana had been found in the motel room. Veiovis has undergone at least one court ordered mental evaluation and been found sane.

The Murders

Adam Lee Hall, a former Sergeant at Arms for the Berkshire County Charter of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, and David Chalue have previously been convicted of murdering David R. Glasser, Glasser’s roommate, Edward Frampton, and their friend Robert Chadwell in August 2011. Capeless has accused Veiovis of participating in the murders and the subsequent dismemberment of the three men. Hall and Chalue are both serving life terms in prison without possibility of parole.

Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless’ theory of Veiovis participation in the triple murder is that the final defendant was motivated by his desire to join the Berkshire County charter. He has said that he will introduce testimony that Hall referred to Veiovis as an Angels prospect. Veiovis did not own a motorcycle.

A fourth man, a backhoe operator named David Casey, is charged with being an accessory after the fact of murder for helping the three other suspects bury the dismembered bodies. Casey is also charged with being and accessory after the fact of intimidation of a witness. Casey testified against Hall and Chalue and is expected to testify against Veiovis. Casey has said he was “intimidated by Hells Angels” when he participated in the burial.


Hall was the only one of the three defendants with actual ties to the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. Prosecutors allege he killed Glasser to prevent the man from testifying against him in an imminent trial. Frampton and Chadwell were killed because they were with Glasser when Hall came to kill him.

Hall has also been accused of forcing three women into prostitution and acting as their pimp. At the time he was charged with Glasser’s murder, Hall was in jail on a charge of possession of child pornography

In 2009, according to prosecutors, Hall unsuccessfully tried to frame Glasser for a robbery in upstate New York. In 2010, Hall met twice with FBI agents and offered to “take down” multiple East Coast charters of the Hells Angels including Berkshire County. Hall volunteered to wear a wire and demanded that the pending charges against him be reduced. The FBI turned him down. After Hall was indicted for trying to frame Glasser in 2011, the Berkshire County Charter mortgaged its clubhouse to make his $250,000 bail.

    He made it real easy to get himself picked out of a line-up. Is that TV’s judge wapners picture on the wall of the second video?

  2. The Great One Says:

    Can the use of “inference” by the prosecution be considered “jury tampering”?

  3. BMW Says:

    A memorable face…just about the only observation to be made, since this incident was obviously scripted by Sutter for a future SOA sequel…

    L,H&R TO ALL 1% RIDERS!!!

    Wonder if you crack dude in the forhead if those boners would pop or leak out or someshit.

    Eeeh…yeah…my mind just can’t focus on what part of this whole case is more messed up than the rest. There is just so much that is messed up in it.

    On the bright side, I’m betting this fellow will be quite popular in prison, if for no other reason than that he is just that unusual.

  6. Va.Bob Says:

    did this Caius chump ever ride bikes?It’d be rough stuffing those dipshit implants inside a hard hat,right?What’s the story with his alleged motorcycling history?

  7. Tomo Says:

    @ Chromdome – sub-dermal implants like that are usually solid; you’d break your knuckles, he’d get one hell of a headache. I know the smaller implants are titanium, I can’t remember what materials are used in the bigger ones.
    Looks like he’s had scarification on his neck too. Now that’s fun: 800 degrees cautrey pen, double line it, scoop out the burnt skin between the lines with a scalpel, then keep picking the scabs until you’ve got a nice scar. Well, that’s how my Mrs had it done. I believe the other option is just purely scalpel based.
    @ Va.Bob – Maybe if he got a full face helmet with all that padding, a size too big, it’d fit?

    In twenty years (or less), “this guy” will be a community organizer, running for President.

  9. Whitepride Says:

    To quote Hank Hill “That boy ain’t right”. As someone who resides in Mass. it makes me wonder what the states definition of “insane” is when they found that this guy is “sane”???

    Snorted coffee out my nose there. Planting an obviously unrelated label on this guy almost serves to minimize his fundamental nuttiness rather than enhance it.

  11. UnaffiliatedObserver Says:

    I can just imagine how the first meeting with the attorney went:

    “Oh, no. I can’t put you in front of a jury looking like that!”

    So Caius shaved.

    “Attorney fears Caius Veiovis’ horns, tattoos will bias jurors in triple murder trial

    SPRINGFIELD — The attorney for accused killer Caius Veiovis told a judge on Thursday that he is concerned that his client’s ‘unusual appearance’ could make it hard for him to get fair jury.

    Veiovis, the last of three men heading to trial in the slayings of three Pittsfield men in August 2011, has horn implants and facial tattoos.

    ‘There’s a serious factor of curiosity and concern when the jury first sees him,’ Veiovis’ attorney, James G. Reardon Jr., said in Hampden Superior Court.

    Berkshire District Attorney David F. Capeless told the court he wasn’t planning to go into any of the possible meanings of the tattoos or try ‘to connect them to the charges.’

    The prosecutor suggested showing the potential jurors a close-up photograph of Veiovis, one that would likely be allowed into evidence during the trial.

    Judge C. Jeffrey Kinder said he was disinclined to have a photograph of the defendant on a screen while a jury was being chosen.

    ‘It rubs me the wrong way,’ he said.

    He decided that he would ask potential jurors if there was anything about the defendant’s appearance that could keep them from being fair and he would let them look at Veiovis’ photo at the time they are to be individually interviewed.”

    TOMO, BARE knuckles, NO! lol In order to really find out if they’d “pop”, you’d need a bat!OR BRASS knuckles! hehehe The larger ones are a type of acrylic that have to be hypo-alergenic. In either case, Chromedome, they ain’t gonna POP, except on the inside of that idiot’s head! hehehehe Excedrine ain’t gonna work there.AND, it’s gonna
    leave a mark, fer sure!

    RtC: ‘whack-a-mole’, prison style.

    This entire thing was fucked by Leo (and I don’t mean LEO that dipshit Hall was known as Leo) from the get go. Glasser had the mind of a kid and the rat beat him with a bat and that’s what started the ball rolling on the entire thing. I am NOT getting this from the media nor the pigs by the way. Leo the rat had been told to back off and he went off the reservation got into deeper shit then when ratting on his brothers didn’t work he recruited the two other clowns. What boggles my mind was they whacked the guys and put them all in the same fucking hole so what was the point of chopping them up in so many pieces they needed 17 garbage bags for all the pieces.

  16. Mike 184 Says:

    All I can say on this is that this is, to say the least, a big pile of crazy shit and Berkshire will surely have to deal (And has likely been dealing with) the fallout. Not sure about any of this mess, but I have met some guys from up there. First class guys for sure. Hate that the decisions of one, have got the media tying them to this freakshow of a character.

    Everyone knows you can’t Prospect without a bike…..

  17. WARTHOG Says:
