Onetime Genovese acting boss Arthur Nigro and Greek brothers Freddy and Ty Geas were sentenced today to life in prison following their racketeering convictions last April involving, among other things, the 2003 slaying of New England capo Adolfo Bruno according to a press release from the FBI.
The government's case rested largely on the testimony of flipped gangsters including Genovese capos Anthony "Bingy" Arillotta and Felix Tranghese.
Frankie Roche, the admitted triggerman in the Bruno slaying, also testified for the government.
Federal prosecutors also accuse convicted loan shark Emilio Fusco of a role in Bruno's murder but he was fighting extradition proceedings in Italy during the trial against his co-defendants. However, now that Fusco is back in the United States, a March 5, 2012 date has been scheduled for his trial.
