SPRINGFIELD, Massachusetts — The trial of the last of three defendants charged with killing three Pittsfield men in 2011 has started.
The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/1lz41t7 ) reports that jury selection in the murder trial of 34-year-old Caius Veiovis (KYE'-us vee-OH'-vis) got underway Tuesday in Hampden Superior Court. He has pleaded not guilty in the slayings in August 2011 of David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell.
The victims' remains were found buried on private property in Becket days later.
The two other men charged in the killings have already been convicted.
Authorities say one of those co-defendants wanted Glasser dead so he couldn't testify against him in another case. The others were killed to eliminate witnesses.
Veiovis was known as Roy Gutfinski Jr. until he legally changed his name while in a Maine prison in 2008.
