Wiseguy decides to flip after threatening to beat up made man, and bringing informant to meet Philly boss

Federal prosecutors appear to have obtained a guilty plea against one of the 13 defendants charged in a sweeping indictment in May against reputed Philadelphia mob boss Joseph "Uncle Joe" Ligambi and some of his top lieutenants.
A court document filed yesterday in federal district court said Louis "Bent Finger Louie" Monacello, 44, of Philadelphia, has agreed to plead guilty. Monacello was charged with conspiracy and extortion offenses.
The plea documents in Monacello's case have been filed under seal, which may indicate that he may be cooperating with the government.

Monacello is allegedly a top figure in Delaware County-based gambling and loan-sharking operations. He was sentenced in 2009 to 11 to 23 months in state prison.
The feds said he was caught on a wiretap arranging to have Martin "Marty" Angelina, a co-defendant and a "made" man, beaten up.
