Reputed Aryan Brotherhood Gang Member Convicted of Murders of Three Men in MA
A reputed member of the Aryan Brotherhood was convicted today in Springfield, Mass., of the premeditated murders of three men whose bullet-riddled bodies were dismembered with a power saw in a failed attempt to conceal the crimes.
The murders were carried out in 2011 by David Chalue and co-defendant Adam Lee Hall, a member of the Hells Angels outlaw motorcycle gang, to silence witnesses the killers believed would testify against them in an earlier assault case, authorities say.
Chalue was convicted by a Hampden County Superior Court jury which spent all week deliberating before reaching its unanimous verdict following a three-week trial, the Springfield Republican reported. Chalue also was found guilty on three counts each of kidnapping and intimidation of a witness in connection with the killings.
On Monday, Judge C. Jeffrey Kinder will sentence Chalue who faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
