FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A defense attorney's illness has delayed the trial of two men accused in the 2001 gangland-style killing of South Florida businessman Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis.
Lawyer David Bogenschutz has an undisclosed illness that prevented him from coming to court Thursday and Friday. He represents Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello, who is charged in the Boulis slaying along with Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari. They face the death penalty if convicted.
The trial will resume Monday assuming Bogenschutz can continue.
Prosecutors say the two Tonys hired a mob hit man to ambush Boulis during an acrimonious struggle over control of the lucrative SunCruz Casinos gambling fleet. Boulis also founded the Miami Subs restaurant chain.
The trial is likely to last at least a few more weeks.
