Reputed Genovese Captain Charged

Anthony "Big Nose" Antico, a reputed capo in the Genovese crime family who already is serving time on a previous racketeering conviction, has been charged by federal prosecutors in Brooklyn, NY "with racketeering and robbery conspiracy in connection with the slaying of a Grasmere jeweler outside a West Brighton restaurant two years ago" as reported by Frank Donnelly for the Staten Island Advance:
Anthony Antico, 74, planned the robbery of jewelry and cash from Louis Antonelli, according to an indictment filed by Brooklyn federal prosecutors. Antonelli, 43, was gunned down as he left El Sabor Tropical restaurant on April 29, 2008. Authorities believe the stickup was ordered because the jeweler owed the mob money. The plot was hatched as early as four weeks before the killing, court papers said.
Five others already have been charged in the case:
The others are John (Wizzie) DeLutro of New Dorp, Salvatore (Sally Fish) Maniscalco of Brooklyn, Anthony Pica of Bay Terrace, Christopher Prince of Ocean Breeze and Charles Santiago of Grant City. Maniscalco, Pica, Prince and Santiago are charged with murder and other crimes. DeLutro is accused of acting as an accomplice. * * * DeLutro, Maniscalco and Santiago all have cut plea deals.
