MONTREAL – Two men are to be charged Thursday morning in connection with the 2011 killing of Mobster Salvatore Montagna.

Police believe Montagna was trying to take control of the Mafia in Montreal when he was shot to death on Nov. 24, 2011, as he was leaving his home on Île Vaudry, a small island just east of Montreal.

In December 2011, 6 men were charged with premeditated murder in the case, including high-profile Mobster Raynald Desjardins.
