A Peru man who was found guilty on February 7th after trial was sentenced this morning in Hampden Superior Court.  The jury deliberated for about 17 hours over a four day period before returning its verdict against 38 year old ADAM LEE HALL a/k/a LEO MAZOLI. 

HALL was found guilty on three (3) counts of MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE, three (3) counts of KIDNAPPING and three (3) counts of INTIMIDATION OF A WITNESS OR OTHER PERSON.  The jury found that HALL kidnapped and then killed 44 year old David Glasser, 58 year old Edward Frampton and 47 year old Robert Chadwell.  The three Pittsfield men were last seen at a Pittsfield apartment shared by Glasser and Frampton on August 28, 2011.

HALL was also found guilty on one (1) count of KIDNAPPING, one (1) count of POSSESSION OF A FIREARM DURING THE COMMISSION OF A FELONY and one (1) count of CONSPIRACY, TO WIT: INTIMIDATION OF A WITNESS OR OTHER PERSON in connection with a plot to kidnap and intimidate David Glasser on August 14, 2010.

The jury also found HALL guilty of one (1) count of ARMED ROBBERY, one (1) count of ASSAULT AND BATTERY BY MEANS OF A DANGEROUS WEAPON and one (1) count of INTIMIDATION OF A WITNESS OR OTHER PERSON.  Those charges stem from an incident in Peru involving David Glasser which occurred on July 21, 2009.
