NEW YORK –   “Big Al” Bruno mob murder trial  jurors delivered swift guilty verdicts. Two Western Massachusetts mob enforcers  Fotios “Freddy” Geas,  his brother Ty Geas,  along with the onetime acting boss of the New York Genovese crime family, Arthur “Artie” Nigro  were found guilty of murder, attempted murder, racketeering, extortion and other crimes.    

At the forefront of the power play was budding mob capo Anthony J. Arillotta, 42, of Springfield, Mass., who quickly turned on the Geases, his former “scare guys,” and Nigro, the boss who formally inducted him into the Genovese family in 2003, after his indictment and arrest last year.
