Trial Update: Basciano Still Looking Good

Anybody who has read "King of the Godfathers" will note in Chapter 28 how Vincent "Vinny Gorgeous" Basciano always looked tan and well coiffed. After nearly five years of solitary confinement, Basciano may not be very tan but he is still well coiffed and nicely tailored in court. During jury selection for his upcoming capital trial, Basciano sits with not a hair out of place in a gray suit, tie and white shirt.  Jury selection is going slowly, the Judge Nicholas Garaufis on Thursday dismissing two potential jurors whom the government wanted to keep in the pool of potentials. A trial may start by mid-April.
