FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A prosecutor says Anthony "Little Tony" Ferrari plotted with a mob-connected associate to have a prominent South Florida businessman killed so money would keep flowing their way from a fleet of lucrative gambling ships

Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis had sold SunCruz Casinos and the new owners had lined up contracts with Ferrari and Anthony "Big Tony" Moscatiello, who witnesses testified was a captain in New York's Gambino crime family. With Boulis trying to regain control, Assistant State Attorney Gregg Rossman told jurors during closing arguments Thursday the two Tonys decided to have him eliminated.

Ferrari, 56, could get the death penalty if convicted, even though he did not pull the trigger the night of Feb. 6, 2001, when Boulis was fatally shot in his car on a Fort Lauderdale street.
