Reputed acting Gambino crime family boss John "Jackie the Nose" D'Amico is poised to cut a deal tomorrow in a case tied to a 1989 murder plot, court papers reveal.
D'Amico "will plead guilty . . . to a superseding information" that will be handed up in Manhattan federal court, where he was indicted last year for allegedly scheming to kill suspected informant Fred Weiss, the filing says.
Prosecutors disclosed D'Amico's anticipated plea in papers detailing evidence against co-defendant Joseph Watts. He's charged with recruiting members of D'Amico's crew for a hit team to help him murder Weiss, a private sanitation exec.
Watts' plan was never realized. Authorities believe Weiss was instead whacked by other mobsters, from New Jersey's DeCavalcante crime family.
