Brooklyn mobster is convicted of murdering his father and brother

An ambitious mobster from Brooklyn was found guilty on Wednesday of planning the murders of his mafia boss father and elder brother.

In a month-long trial, the prosecution said that Anthony Zottola, 44, hired a hitman and a Bloods gang member to kill his 71-year-old father, Sylvester Zottola, in an effort to inherit his $45 million real estate business.

According to their accounts, the younger Zottola was a cruel and power-hungry individual who made jokes with Bloods gang member Brushawn “Shelz” Shelton after he and his accomplices carried out the $200,000 murder.

In the end, a jury in Brooklyn Federal Court convicted him guilty on Wednesday for the 2018 homicide at a McDonald’s drive-through.

Himen Ross, a 36-year-old hitman who was also one of his co-defendants, was also found guilty of carrying out the shooting, while Alfred Lopez, the alleged getaway driver, was cleared of all charges.

In a statement, US Attorney Breon Pearce claimed that the elderly victim, Sylvester Zottola, had been harassed, assaulted, and stabbed over the period of more than a year.

His own son hired a group of hitmen to kill his father because he was so desperate to take over the rich family real estate firm.

Anthony Zottola and his co-defendant will spend the remainder of their lives in jail, where they deserve, as a consequence of today’s conviction, for sentenced his father to a terrible death.

On February 2, Zottola is due to get his punishment.
