Son On Trial For Allegedly Killing Mobbed Up Dad

In Hackensack, NJ trial for William Silvi is set for March in connection with the May 2008 murder of his father William Marcucci who was a Genovese associate involved in the gambling rackets as reported by Kibret Markos for The Record:
The death was originally thought to be a mob hit after authorities identified Marcucci as a Genovese crime family associate who was active in gambling operations. Bergen County prosecutors later determined that the killing was not mob-related, and charged Marcucci's son, William Silvi, with murder. Prosecutors said Silvi planned the murder and recruited his brother-in-law, Daniel Tunks, to shoot Marcucci so he could collect $750,000 in life insurance.
