Reputed Gambino associate Gennaro "Jerry" Bruno has pleaded guilty to a federal racketeering charge involving, among other things, the 2002 murder of Martin Bosshart in a turf war over the drug trade according to a Justice Department press release:
According to court filings and facts presented during the plea proceeding, Bruno became an associate in the Corozzo Faction of the Gambino crime family by approximately 2000, after proving himself over a number of years as a member of a violent gang called the "Young Guns." Over the next 14 years, Bruno engaged in numerous crimes with and on behalf of a faction of the Gambino crime family aligned with Joseph "JoJo" Corozzo, a powerful Gambino member who had risen to become the consigliere of the family. Bruno and other Gambino crime family members and associates moved large quantities of high-potency marijuana from Canada into the New York City area. In 2001, Bruno's criminal associate Martin Bosshart began making efforts to exclude one of Bruno's coconspirators from the marijuana importation operation. In an effort to prevent Bosshart from doing so, Bruno plotted with other Gambino crime family members and associates to murder Bosshart. On the night of January 2, 2002, Bruno lured Bosshart to an isolated location in Queens, NY. There, Bruno shot Bosshart in the back of the head at point-blank range, killing him immediately. The body of Martin Bosshart, who was 30 years old at the time, was recovered at the scene.
Pursuant to the plea agreement Bruno will be sentenced to 21 years in prison.
