October retrial set in Gus Boulis slaying case

Hearing to discuss retrial for Anthony Moscatiello

Headline Goes Here

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A judge ordered an October retrial for Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello in the mob-style slaying of prominent South Florida businessman Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis

Broward Circuit Judge Ilona Holmes set the retrial for Oct. 13.

Moscatiello was dismissed in the middle of last year's trial in the 2001 slaying of Boulis because his attorney became ill.

Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. Moscatiello could also get life or the death penalty if found guilty. A third suspect pleaded guilty to murder conspiracy and testified for prosecutors in return for a lenient sentence.

Testimony in Ferrari's trial indicated Boulis was slain during a power struggle over the SunCruz Casinos gambling fleet. Boulis also founded the Miami Subs restaurant chain.
