FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Closing arguments are set in the retrial of reputed mobster Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello in the 2001 slaying of a South Florida businessman in a power struggle over a gambling ship fleet.
Jurors will begin deliberations after Monday's arguments. Moscatiello could get the death penalty if convicted for the shooting death of Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis, former SunCruz Casinos chief and founder of Miami Subs restaurants.
Moscatiello got a mistrial in 2013 when his attorney became ill. Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
Prosecutors say Moscatiello is a member of New York's Gambino crime family who ordered Boulis killed by a mob hit man. Moscatiello did not testify in his own defense, but his lawyers sought to pin the slaying on Ferrari.
