A judge declared a mistrial Thursday afternoon for Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello, who is charged in Gus Boulis’ murder, because his lawyer is not healthy enough to continue.

The trial was delayed for a week because of an undisclosed illness on the part of Moscatiello’s attorney, David Bogenschutz. The case resumed Wednesday.

Moscatiello, 75, and Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari, 56, are accused of orchestrating the murder of Boulis, a South Florida businessman, in 2001. They have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges.

Ferrari’s trial will continue, Broward Circuit Judge Ilona Holmes said.

Moscatiello is expected to have another trial at a later date.

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. Boulis founded SunCruz and the Miami Subs restaurant chain.
