FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — After several days of delay caused by an attorney's illness, testimony is scheduled to resume Wednesday in the trial of two men accused in the 2001 killing of a prominent South Florida businessman.
Broward Circuit Judge Ilona Holmes said the trial would resume assuming attorney David Bogenschutz is well enough to continue. He represents Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello, charged with murder along with Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari in the shooting death of Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis.
If trial doesn't restart, Holmes said she would release jurors from sequestration but would not declare a mistrial.
Prosecutors say Boulis was killed by a mob hit man in a power struggle over the SunCruz Casinos gambling fleet. Boulis also founded the Miami Subs restaurant chain.
The two Tonys face the death penalty if convicted.
