Key witness takes the stand in 'Hell's Angel' trial
SPRINGFIELD, MASS - Key witness, David Casey, takes the stand for the prosecution. He describes in graphic detail how Adam Lee Hall gutted three men, chopping their heads, legs, and arms off.
Casey says Hall told him he slept like a baby after he cut David Glasser's head off, held it up by the hair, and said how ugly he looked.
David Casey worked in construction and owned a excavator. Casey describes Hall as an acquaintance, someone he once did business with.
Casey says on August 28th, 2011 Hall asked him if he was still doing excavation work. He wanted help burying the remains.
Casey says Hall told him quote, "If you help me, no harm will come to you, your girlfriend, or your family."
Casey reluctantly agreed because he felt responsible for his family and concerned for his own safety.
He told the court the last time he saw Hall, Hall said quote, "remember to keep your mouth shut. Even in jail I can make things happen."
During the cross examination, the defense continuously questioned Casey about statements he made to police. Casey struggles to recall a lot of the interviews, but admits lying to police on multiple occasions.
The defense worked on Casey's credibility throughout the afternoon, but Casey continues to say he lied because he was afraid of Hall and his associates.
