A jury has not yet been seated in the trial of 2 men accused in the mob-related killing of Miami Subs founder and casino ship operator Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis.
Dozens of prospective jurors have been questioned this past week. Defense attorneys and prosecutors hope to settle early next week on 12 jurors plus alternates to hear evidence in the 2001 killing. On trial are 75-year-old Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello and 56-year-old Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari. They could get the death penalty if convicted.
Boulis was gunned down in his car on a Fort Lauderdale street. Witnesses say he was slain amid a power struggle over SunCruz Casinos, which he had sold a year earlier.
One witness claims a hit man hired by Moscatiello killed Boulis.
