Trial in 2nd week in Fla. businessman slaying
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- The second week of trial is starting in Fort Lauderdale for two men accused of arranging the 2001 mob-style slaying of a prominent South Florida businessman.
Testimony resumes Monday in the prosecution's case against Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello and Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari. They are accused of orchestrating the shooting death by a mob hit man of Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis during a struggle for control of the SunCruz Casinos gambling fleet.
Moscatiello and Ferrari face the death penalty if convicted. Prosecutors say Moscatiello is part of New York's Gambino crime family.
Boulis, founder of the Miami Subs restaurant chain, was attempting to regain control over SunCruz after selling the fleet a few months earlier. SunCruz was purchased by New York businessman Adam Kidan and former Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
