Hinsdale man pleads guilty to murdering Kassedi Clark

Pittsfield — The Hinsdale man responsible for the murder of Kassedi Clark pled guilty Monday in Berkshire Superior Court.

Michael Boulais, 34, pled guilty to first-degree murder, reckless endangerment of a child and improper storage of a firearm.

Judge John Agostini sentenced Boulais to serve life in prison without parole at the Massachusetts Correctional Institution at Cedar Junction on the first-degree murder charge.

Boulais shot and killed the 24-year-old Clark on April 13, 2018.

“I send my condolences to Kassedi’s family and friends for their tragic loss,” District Attorney Andrea Harrington said. “This is a just outcome for yet another domestic violence homicide in our county. I thank the law enforcement personnel for their investigation into the matter and our victim witness advocates for helping the family cope with such a terrible situation.”

Massachusetts State Police Detective Unit assigned to the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office, Hinsdale and Dalton police departments, Berkshire County Sheriff’s Office, Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Cheshire barracks, Massachusetts State Police Troop B, the Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene Services, and Ballistics Sections and the forensic scientists assigned to the Massachusetts State Police Crime Laboratory conducted the investigation.
