Can A Guy With Horns, Tattoos Get A Fair Trial? Lawyer Doesn't Think So

Posted: Updated:
(FOX 11/AP)- The lawyer for a man charged with murder for his alleged role in the slayings of three Berkshire County men says he's concerned his client's “unique appearance” will prevent selection of impartial jurors. It isn't hard to see why when you take a look at the self-professed vampire and satanist.

Caius Veiovis is one of three suspects facing trial in the August 2011 slayings of Edward Frampton, Robert Chadwell and David Glasser.The 33-year-old Veiovis has two rows of bumps resembling horns implanted in his forehead, a 666 tattoo between them, and other facial and neck tattoos. After discussing the matter, a Hampden Superior Court judge on Thursday told defense lawyer James Reardon Jr. he would ask potential jurors if there was anything about the Veiovis' appearance that would keep them from being fair.

The trial is scheduled to start Sept. 3. Veiovis has pleaded not guilty.

Veiovis is the third person charged with the killings of the three men. Adam Lee Hall and David Chalue were both found guilty of murder in separate trials, which were held in Springfield due to the publicity the case received in the Berkshires. The three are alleged to have killed Glasser in order to prevent him from testifying against Hall (a high-ranking member of the Hell's Angels motorcycle gang) in an assault case. Prosecutors say Frampton and Chadwell were killed to eliminate any witnesses to Glasser's kidnapping.
