Third Defendant Sentenced In Jeweler's Slaying

Flag of Staten IslandImage via WikipediaCharles Santiago has been sentenced to 15 years after pleading guilty for his role in the 2008 slaying of Staten Island jeweler Louis Antonelli during a botched robbery as reported by Frank Donnelly for The Staten Island Advance.  Prosecutors allege that the robbery plot against Antonelli was hatched by a Genovese crew because the jeweler failed to make tribute payments on the sale of his wares at a Brooklyn social club.  Two others -- Anthony Pica and John "Wizzie" DeLutro -- already have been sentenced for their involvement in the robbery fiasco, and Christopher Prince will be sentenced later today.  Joseph Gencarelli, a former city worker, and Salvatore "Sally Fish" Maniscalco remain to be sentenced.  Last July a federal jury acquitted reputed Genovese capo Anthony "Big Nose" Antico of ordering the Antonelli robbery.
