    Jury selection has begun for two men accused in the mob-related 2001 slaying of a South Florida businessman who founded the Miami Subs chain and ran a fleet of casino ships.
     
    Court began Monday with a Broward County judge tossing out murder solicitation charges against 75-year-old Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello and 56-year-old Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari. Both men could get the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder and murder conspiracy charges in the slaying of Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis over 12 years ago.

      Prosecution witnesses say a hit man gunned down Boulis as he sat in his car. The witnesses claim Moscatiello used his connections with New York's Gambino crime family to set up the slaying in a power struggle over now-defunct SunCruz Casinos.
     
    Moscatiello and Ferrari pleaded not guilty.
