Escaped Rochester mob hitman later captured by feds pleads guilty

Convicted killer-for-hire Dominic Taddeo pleaded guilty Tuesday to escaping from his federal halfway house.

With less than a year left on his sentence, Taddeo left the Florida home for a scheduled doctor's visit in late March. He didn't come back.

He was captured a week later near Miami.

He will be sentenced in October.

Taddeo was later convicted of killing three men, including Nicholas Mastrodonato in his Gates coin store in May of 1982, in the early 1980s during Rochester's mob wars. His other victims include Gerald Pelusio and Dino Tortatice.
