Jury in Berkshire triple slaying deliberating

Posted:
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - The jury is now deliberating in the case of a North Adams man charged with helping kill three Pittsfield men.
Prosecutors say 47-year-old David Chalue was one of three men who carried out the killings in August 2011 of David Glasser, Robert Chadwell and Edward Frampton. Chalue has pleaded not guilty to three counts of murder and other charges.
The Hampden Superior Court jury is expected to resume deliberations Tuesday after starting Monday.
Chalue's lawyer said in closing statements that the prosecution's case is built largely on unreliable jailhouse informants.
Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless urged jurors to consider all the evidence, not just the informants.
The ringleader, Adam Lee Hall, has already been convicted. Prosecutors say he wanted Glasser dead so he couldn't testify in an unrelated assault case.
