Ex-Capo in New England Mafia Charged with Lying to Feds 

FBI ShieldBOSTON (AP) — A former capo in the New England Mafia has been arrested in Florida on a charge of lying to federal authorities about the 1993 killing of a Boston nightclub owner.

A spokeswoman for the FBI office in Boston says 71-year-old Robert DeLuca was arrested Monday morning in Coral Springs.

DeLuca is set to make his initial appearance in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, later Monday.

He was among the mobsters captured on an FBI tape being inducted into La Cosa Nostra in 1989 during a ceremony in Medford, Massachusetts. DeLuca later cooperated with law enforcement officials.

In the recent case, DeLuca was indicted in Massachusetts on charges of obstruction of justice and making false statements.

He is accused of lying when he denied knowing anything about Steven DiSarro’s disappearance in May 1993.
