FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Trial is off until late summer in the 2001 mob-style slaying of the former owner of the Miami Subs restaurant chain and SunCruz Casinos gambling fleet.
A defense attorney's required knee surgery led a Broward County judge on Monday to delay the trial of two men until Aug. 12. The trial had been scheduled to start next week.
Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis was killed by a gunman who pulled alongside his car on a Fort Lauderdale street. Facing the death penalty if convicted are Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello and Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari. Both have pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors say Boulis was killed in a power struggle over SunCruz. Boulis had recently sold the business to former Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff and a partner. They are not implicated in the murder.
