A Broward judge has decided to resume the trial of two men accused of the 2001 slaying of South Florida businessman Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis on Wednesday, when a defense attorney who has been ill is expected back in court.

Broward Circuit Judge Ilona Holmes said Monday that the case would resume on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m., after delays because of lawyer David Bogenschutz's undisclosed illness.

He represents Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello, on trial for murder along with Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari. They could get the death penalty if convicted.
 
The trial was halted Thursday and was expected to resume on Monday, but Holmes spoke with Bogenschutz's doctor, who said he is expected back in court Wednesday.
 
Prosecutors say Boulis was shot to death on a downtown Fort Lauderdale street by a mob hit man during a struggle for control of the lucrative SunCruz Casinos gambling fleet. Witnesses have testified that Moscatiello is a high-ranking member of New York's Gambino organized crime family.
 
Before running SunCruz, Boulis founded the Miami Subs restaurant chain.
