FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Trial is finally starting for two men accused of murder in the 2001 mob-style slaying of a South Florida businessman who founded Miami Subs and ran a casino cruise fleet.

Opening statements are set Monday in the case against Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello and Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari. They are accused of orchestrating a hit against Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis amidst a power struggle over SunCruz Casinos. Boulis was fatally shot in his car on a Fort Lauderdale street.

If convicted Moscatiello and Ferrari could get the death penalty. A third man involved in the case pleaded guilty last year to murder conspiracy and is expected to testify for the prosecution.

Former Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff and a partner pleaded guilty to fraud in purchasing SunCruz and did prison time.
