The Hit on Genovese Capo "Big Al" Bruno

Stephanie Barry from The Republican has been ahead of the curve in covering the criminal proceedings involving the 2003 hit against New England Genovese capo Adolfo "Big Al" Bruno in Springfield, MA, and she now has a three-part series following the federal indictment out of Manhattan last week of Anthony Arillotta -- the reputed capo who allegedly succeeded Bruno -- and reputed former acting Genovese boss Arthur Nigro in connection with the murder:  Part I; Part II; and Part III.  Barry writes:
The records unsealed in Hampden Superior Court show that [self-admitted shooter] Frankie Roche reported to authorities that "among the reasons Fred Geas provided for Bruno's murder was that Bruno was a rat and having money concerns with New York," according to a motion by assistant district attorney Carmen W. Picknally, who is prosecuting the state court case.
