Retrial to begin with jury selection for 'Big Tony' in 2001 killing of Florida businessman


FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida — Jury selection is beginning for the retrial of a reputed mobster charged in the 2001 slaying of a prominent South Florida businessman who ran a gambling fleet and founded Miami Subs restaurants.

Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello is being tried again in the shooting death of Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis, former chief of SunCruz Casinos. Jury selection begins Monday.

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 the 77-year-old Moscatiello is a member of New York's Gambino crime family who wanted Boulis killed in a power struggle over SunCruz. Moscatiello denies mob ties and pleaded not guilty. He faces the death penalty if convicted.

Boulis was fatally shot by a purported mob hit man.
