Ex-Acting Boss of Genovese Crime Family Charged in 2003 Murder

The New York U.S. Attorney’s Office continues to hammer away at the Genovese Organized Crime Family.

The office on Wednesday announced the indictment of former acting boss Arthur Nigro and made member Anthony Arillota on racketeering crimes including the 2003 murder of Adolfo Bruno, a member of the crime family who reportedly ran an operation out of Massachusetts.

Additionally, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said the indictment charged crime family members Steve Alfisi with racketeering and Marcos Caio, James Coumoutsos and George Coumoutsos with working with Alfisi in an illegal gambling operation.

A press release says that in 2003, Nigro, who served as acting boss of the crime family for a while, and Arilotta murdered Adolfo Bruno “in order to maintain and increase their position in the Genovese Organized Crime Family, as well as to prevent Bruno from providing information to law enforcement about crimes committed by members of the Genovese Organized Crime Family.”

The indictment comes just weeks after the acting head of the Genovese organized crime family, Daniel Leo, aka “The Lion,” and his nephew Joseph Leo, a lieutenant, pleaded guilty in Manhattan federal court to racketeering charges related to loan sharking, extortion and illegal gambling.
