Mob life may be inconsistent with family values.
While reputed Rizzuto associate Giuseppe De Vito was on the lam from drug charges his wife Adele Sorella allegedly murdered their eight- and nine-year-old daughters, and jury selection in the notorious case starts today as reported by Paul Cherry for The Gazette:
Sorella, 47, was charged, in April 2009, with the first-degree murders of daughters Sabrina and Amanda De Vito, ages 8 and 9 respectively. The girls' bodies were discovered inside their family's home in Laval on March 31, 2009.
After four years as a fugitive Giuseppe De Vito was apprehended in October 2010, and last June was sentenced to fifteen years in prison for his role in a cocaine smuggling operation through the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport as then reported by Paul Cherry for The Gazette: "wiretaps revealed De Vito was furious . . . because the people who did the actual smuggling lied to the Mafia about how much they were importing to avoid a so-called tax the organization charged for 'a door' through the airport created by De Vito."
Neither Sorella nor De Vito attended the poor girls' funeral.
