Gambino gangster charged with John Gotti's last murder is free on $2 million bond

Daniel Fama mug shot
A reputed Gambino mobster charged in the last hit believed ordered by John Gotti is back on the street, thanks to an assist from Gotti underboss Sammy "The Bull" Gravano.

Daniel Fama, 48, a Staten Island ex-con, was released Monday on a $2 million bond after his lawyer said testimony from Gravano will refute the allegation.

Busted in April, Fama is charged with killing an informant to obstruct justice, not conventional murder. But lawyer Seth Ginsberg contends that Fama, whether he participated in the murder of Edward Garafalo in 1990 or not, was unaware the mobster was a rat.

“Gravano is prepared to testify that John Gotti ordered him to kill Garafalo for a variety of reasons” and not because he was an informant, Ginsberg wrote in a bail application.
