BOSTON (AP) — Jurors are heading back to federal court for a third day of deliberations in the case against a former New England Mafia boss charged with killing a nightclub owner more than two decades ago.
Jurors in the Francis “Cadillac Frank” Salemme case left the Boston courthouse Wednesday without reaching a verdict. They’re expected to get back to work on Thursday.
Salemme and his co-defendant, Paul Weadick, are charged in the 1993 strangling of Steven DiSarro. Salemme and Weadick deny involvement in DiSarro’s killing.
DiSarro’s remains were found in 2016 near a mill building in Providence, Rhode Island.
