Colombo consigliere Joel (Joe Waverly) Cacace is on trial in Brooklyn Federal Court for allegedly ordering the murder of NYPD Officer Ralph Dols.

A high-ranking Mafioso ordered the murder of NYPD Police Officer Ralph Dols because the victim had “dared” to marry the gangster’s ex-wife, a federal prosecutor told jurors Tuesday.

Joel (Joe Waverly) Cacace was the reputed consigliere of the Colombo crime family when he put out a contract on the doomed cop, said Assistant Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Sam Nitze.

“The defendant use the Mafia’s twisted code to take the life of a 28-year-old police officer,” Nitze said in his opening statement of Cacace’s murder trial.
