FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Crime scene testimony is expected to dominate the first full day of the trial of two men accused of the gangland-style slaying of a prominent South Florida businessman.
Prosecutors on Tuesday will begin laying out the evidence against Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello and Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari. They face the death penalty if convicted of arranging the 2001 shooting death of Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis allegedy by a mob hit man.
In opening statements Monday, prosecutor Gregg Rossman said Boulis was killed in a power struggle over the SunCruz Casinos gambling fleet. Moscatiello and Ferrari's lawyers say they had nothing to do with the killing.
Boulis also founded the Miami Subs restaurant chain. He had sold SunCruz to former Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff and a partner shortly before he was killed.
