Last January Luigi "Baby Shacks" Manocchio, the former reputed boss of the Patriarca crime family, was indicted on extortion charges for allegedly shaking down Providence, RI jiggle joints, and at his arraignment hearing yesterday federal prosecutors announced that more charges against the lifelong bachelor mobster may be forthcoming as reported by Tim White and Ted Nesi for WPRI:
In an extensive new filing Thursday, prosecutors alleged Manocchio has maintained with organized crime since reportedly stepping down around 2009 after more than a decade as the boss of New England's La Cosa Nostra, and said therefore he should remain behind bars. Prosecutors expect more indictments against Manocchio and additional defendants to come down before the case is finished, according to Thursday's filing. They also claim to have made members of the Patriarca family who are prepared to testify in court against Manocchio.
Meanwhile, in court papers federal prosecutors are identifying those whom they believe are running the New England Mafia including "acting boss Peter Limone and underboss Anthony DiNunzio" as reported by Mike Beaudet for FOX 25.
