FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- A South Florida judge says trial can resume Wednesday in the case of two men accused of the 2001 slaying of South Florida businessman Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis.
Broward Circuit Judge Ilona Holmes said Monday a doctor assured her defense lawyer David Bogenschutz will recover by then from undisclosed illness. He represents Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello, on trial for murder along with Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari. They could get the death penalty if convicted.
There was concern of a possible mistrial or releasing the sequestered jury because of the illness-caused delays.
Prosecutors say Boulis was shot to death on a downtown Fort Lauderdale street by a mob hit man during a struggle for control of the lucrative SunCruz Casinos gambling fleet. Before running SunCruz, Boulis founded the Miami Subs restaurant chain.
