Wiseguy murdered boyfriend of Alley Boy Persico's former wife

It was a mob hit — over a woman.
Veteran wiseguy Francis “BF” Guerra yesterday was accused of helping carry out the point-blank 1992 execution of a man who was dating the ex-wife of a senior Colombo crime-family gangster.
Alphonse “Allie Boy” Persico — behind bars at the time — was angry about his ex-wife’s relationship, and her new boyfriend, Michael Devine, was warned to cut off the romance.
“But Michael Devine didn’t listen to that message,” Assistant US Attorney Allon Lifshitz said in opening statements at Guerra’s murder trial in Brooklyn federal court. “Michael Devine was murdered to send a message.”

He was shot four times in the head, once in the chest, and twice in the groin. Message sent, prosecutors said.
Guerra is also charged in a second hit during the crime family’s factional wars, and with several extortion counts.
