David Chalue was sentenced Monday to three consecutive life sentences in prison for the murders of three Pittsfield men.
After several days of deliberations, a jury found Chalue guilty in his triple murder trial Friday.
The 47-year-old was on trial for the killings of Edward Frampton, David Glasser and Robert Chadwell in August 2011. It took the jury 30 hours over five days to reach a verdict.
Chalue will have no opportunity for the possibility of parole.
In addition to the three murder charges, Chalue was also found guilty of three counts each of kidnapping and intimidating a witness.
Prosecutors had argued that Adam Lee Hall, who has already been convicted, wanted the victims dead in relation to another case.
Hall, 36, of Peru; Chalue, 46, of North Adams, and Caius Veiovis, 32, of Pittsfield, kidnapped the three victims and shot them to death in August 2011, according to prosecutors.
