The defendants charged in the 2003 hit on Adolfo "Big Al" Bruno, the Genovese capo in charge of the crime family's New England operations, are scheduled to go on trial Nov. 1 as reported by Stephanie Barry for The Republican.  The feds have charged: Anthony Arillotta, the reputed capo who allegedly succeeded Bruno; Arthur Nigro, a reputed former acting Genovese boss; and Fotios "Freddy" Geas, a supposed sometime enforcer for Arillotta.  Frankie Roche, the admitted triggerman in the Bruno slaying, alleges that he was paid $10,000 by Geas for the job.  Stephanie Barry writes:
Investigators describe Bruno's slaying as a classic mob hit in every sense: the much-younger Arillotta allegedly sought permission from New York bosses to take Bruno out because the mobster was perceived as a weak leader and had raised suspicions he was working as an informant for the FBI, according to the indictment.
