Caius Veiovis, who along with two others was accused of killing three men named David R. Glasser, Edward Frampton, and Robert Chadwell. was found guilty last Friday of the murder charges as well as kidnapping.
The jury in the case deliberated for 37 hours over six days before reaching the verdict. After hearing their judgment Veiovis, a Satanist who legally changed his named from Roy C. Gutfinski Jr. while in prison in Maine, screamed, “I’ll see you all in hell! Remember that! Every fucking one of you. I’ll see you all in hell.”
Monday, Judge C. Jeffrey Kinder sentenced Veiovis to three consecutive life terms in prison. Veiovis has six devil’s horns implanted in his forehead which is also decorated with a “666” tattoo. He has a previous conviction for slashing a 16-year-old girl and drinking her blood.
Veiovis lawyer James G, Reardon Jr. said at the sentencing yesterday that his client is not the man portrayed in the media.
Veiovis read a prepared statement in which he argued that he was innocent. “Let me make this clear. My hand wasn’t in this,” Veiovis said. He said people who want him to “hang my head…are just as deluded as the jury of my peers who convicted me.”
“You condemn an innocent man and I will appeal this,” Veiovis read.
He also argued that the prosecutor in the case, District Attorney David Capeless, “knew I did not kill these men” and wanted Veiovis to become an informer in order to win a lenient sentence. “I will not let this man sell me my own hide at the price of my integrity,” the convicted man said. “I would rather spend the rest of my life in prison rather than make that deal.”
Hall And Chalue
His alleged conspirators, former Hells Angel Adam Lee Hall and David Chalue, were convicted earlier this year and are also serving life sentences. The murders were motivated by Hall’s desire to keep Glasser from testifying against him. A fourth man named David Casey is accused of helping the three convicted men dispose of the bodies.
The case was widely identified as the “Hells Angels murders” because of Hall’s association with the club. Prosecutors had argued that both Veiovis and Chalue participated in the murders because they thought it would help them join the motorcycle club.
