Trial Update: Basciano trial likely to open March 2, 2011

Dust off your copies of "King of The Godfathers." The death penalty trial of Vincent Basciano for murder conspiracy is set for jury selection on February 15 in Brooklyn federal court, with the passing out of juror questionnaires. This is the case examined in Chapter 28 of the book. By March 2nd, the defense and prosecution is set to pick a jury, which means the case could open then. The big witness is slated to be former Bonanno boss Joseph Massino, the subject of the book.
