Reynold Maragni, a Colombo capo who wore a wire for the feds, testified yesterday at the racketeering trial against former reputed street boss Thomas "Tommy Shots" Gioeli and reputed soldier Dino "Little Dino" Saracino who are accused of multiple murders in keeping order within the crime family as reported by the New York Post.
Among the conversations captured by Maragni was one with reputed soldier Vincent Manzo Sr. who blabs that Gioeli showed him "where the hole was" in which to dump the body of underboss William "Wild Bill" Cutolo: "their conversation is a key piece of evidence that Gioeli and the rest of the Colombo leadership had Cutolo murdered in May 1999 after suspecting he might try to take over the family."
Maragni had become "a goodfella with Gioeli's blessing," and first "met Gioeli in the 1970s at Monte’s Venetian restaurant in Brooklyn" as reported by the Daily News.
Meanwhile, Kimberly Kennaugh whose cop husband Ralph Dols was among those allegedly whacked by Tommy Shots and Little Dino upon orders of her ex-husband former reputed Colombo acting boss Joel Cacace, is not attending the trial as reported by the New York Post: "'I don't know how I would feel looking at these two men making a mockery of this . . . when they turned my life into a living hell,' Kennaugh said."
