FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – One of three men charged in a notorious South Florida murder case has taken a plea deal and will testify against his two co-defendants.

Anthony “Big Tony” Moscatiello and Anthony ‘Little Tony” Ferrari, both charged with first degree murder, were in court Tuesday for motions in the case just days after learning James “Pudgy” Fiorillo will testify against them in the murder of South Florida businessman Konstantinos “Gus” Boulis.

Boulis, who founded Miami Subs and SunCruz casinos, was gunned down Feb. 6, 2001 after leaving a meeting at his Fort Lauderdale office. One car cut him off on Miami Road, and a black Mustang pulled up alongside him, according to witness statements and court records. Numerous shots were fired, and Boulis was shot three times.

Fiorello is currently in protective custody after he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit murder. Moscatiello is free on bond and Ferrari remains in jail. All three were arrested in September 2005 and charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

According to the Sun Sentinel, Fiorillo told investigators that he didn’t shoot Boulis and he wasn’t there when it happened but admitted to being part of the conspiracy.

Boulis was reportedly killed over the sale of his casino boat business.

The gunman was believed to be John Gurino, a New York mobster who was killed in 2003 in Boca Raton.

Fiorillo’s plea deal calls for a 30-year sentence unless Fiorillo fully cooperates with the prosecution and testifies against his former co-defendants. The lowest sentence he can receive is 6 years which he’s already served while awaiting trial. He’ll also receive 10 years probation.

Moscatiello and Ferrari face the death penalty if convicted.
