April 5: Trial In Murder Of Genovese Capo

The trial of Fotios "Freddy" Geas, charged with planning the 2003 hit against New England Genovese capo Adolfo "Big Al" Bruno, has been adjourned from March 1 "to April 5 after the departure of Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd E. Newhouse from the case" as reported by Stephanie Barry for The Republican:

Geas was charged in 2008 with murder in aid of racketeering after admitted gunman Frankie A. Roche, who was charged previously in Hampden Superior Court, turned federal informant and told the FBI Geas paid him $10,000 to kill Bruno. Roche, an ex-con and fringe character in local criminal circles, told agents that Geas, a reputed mob enforcer, recruited him to shoot Bruno on behalf of rival gangsters amid a coup. Bruno, 57, was the local head of the New York-based Genovese crime family until Roche shot him six times as the mobster left his regular Sunday night card game on Nov. 23, 2003.
