FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida — A South Florida jury has not yet reached a verdict in the trial of reputed mobster Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello for the 2001 slaying of a prominent businessman during a power struggle over a gambling ship fleet.

The sequestered jury deliberated Tuesday without a decision and will resume Wednesday. Moscatiello faces the death penalty if convicted of ordering a hit man to fatally shoot Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis, founder of SunCruz Casinos and Miami Subs restaurants.

A mistrial was declared for Moscatiello in 2013, but Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

Prosecutors say the 77-year-old Moscatiello is a member of New York's Gambino crime family who ordered Boulis killed. Moscatiello did not testify in his own defense, but his lawyers say others are to blame.
