Gambino associate indicted in 2002 drug related murder

Gennaro Bruno was busted in Las Vegas on charges that he murdered a man in Queens in 2002.

A reputed Gambino associate has been indicted in a 2002 drug-related murder in Queens.

Gennaro Bruno, 41, was arrested Tuesday by the FBI in Las Vegas and will be arraigned at a future date in Brooklyn Federal Court.

Bruno, 41, is charged with firing a bullet at point blank range into the back of the head of pot dealer Martin Bosshart as Bosshart urinated on the side of a road in Howard Beach.

The indictment alleges that Bruno was aligned with the "Corozzo Faction" of the Gambino family, referring to former consigliere Joseph "JoJo" Corozzo.

Another Gambino associate, Todd LaBarca, pleaded guilty in 2012 to participating in Bosshart's rubout.
