Respect comes in different forms. In the mob world, it often comes in the form of $$$.

Brooklyn federal prosecutors on Wednesday said mobbed up Staten Island jeweler Louis Antonelli was murdered because he disrespected Genovese capo Anthony Antico, 74, by failing to pay him cash kickbacks for selling gems at Antico’s social club, the N.Y. Daily News reported.

The paper reported that Antonelli, 43, was fatally shot April 29, 2008, in West Brighton in Staten Island.

Defense lawyer Gerald McMahon called one of the government’s witnesses “a chain saw murderer” and another “a mass murderer.”
