SPRINGFIELD, Massachusetts — A Springfield jury has ended its first full day of deliberations without reaching a verdict on the final defendant charged in the killings of three Pittsfield men in 2011.

Jurors spent Monday considering the murder case against 34-year-old Caius Veiovis (KYE'-us vee-OH'-vis). They are to resume Tuesday. Jurors got the case Friday afternoon.

Defense attorney James Reardon Jr. says there's no evidence Veiovis was present when David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell were killed. Their dismembered remains were found buried in Beckett.

Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless says the evidence against Veiovis is "compelling" enough to find him guilty.

The two other men charged in the killings have 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.
