PITTSFIELD — Three men accused in the 2018 stabbing death of William Catalano are expected to go to trial in May.

Jason Sefton, 21, Anthony Boone, 23 and Bruce Romano, 29, all face murder charges in Catalano's death and are being held without the right to bail.

During a hearing in Berkshire Superior Court on Tuesday, First Assistant Berkshire District Attorney Karen Bell said that all of the discovery evidence, apart from pending DNA reports, is complete. The state intends to call 15 to 20 witnesses.

She said Sefton might be tried separately from his co-defendants and will be the first of the group to go to trial.

Sefton's attorney, Jeremy Powers, said he might file a motion to dismiss the charges against his client.

In October, Judge Michael Callan denied motions to dismiss the charges against Boone and Romano.

Catalano, 34, was stabbed to death outside 219 Robbins Ave. on Oct. 15, 2018.

A surveillance video purports to show the four men in an altercation, during which Catalano was stabbed.

In his ruling on the motion to dismiss, Callan said the "high-quality" digital video shows the attack was "joined by all three defendants during which Mr. Catalano was stabbed to death."

He said the attack was not a split-second incident but a sustained incident that lasted for about 20 seconds.

The three men are being charged together under a joint venture theory.

All three defendants have pleaded not guilty. If convicted of first-degree murder, the defendants face life in prison without the possibility of parole.

A final pretrial hearing in the cases was scheduled for April 9.

Boone and Romano are represented by attorneys Paul Rudof and Jennifer Cox, respectively.
