The Last Don set to testify at upcoming murder trial of NYPD officer

The “Last Don” is now slated to take the witness stand at the upcoming death-penalty trial of a ranking Colombo mobster who allegedly ordered the murder of an off-duty NYPD officer, attorneys said yesterday.
Former Bonanno crime-family boss Joseph Massino — now an FBI informant — is expected to testify against Colombo consigliere Joel “Joe Waverly” Cacace, who’s charged with sanctioning the 1997 hit on NYPD Officer Ralph Dols because the cop had married the wiseguy’s ex-wife.
Last year, Massino — once dubbed “The Last Don” — became the first boss in New York mob history to take the witness stand as a federal informant.
