NEW YORK – A federal judge is scheduled to sentence Springfield gangster-turned-informant Anthony J. Arillotta March 20 in connection with the 2003 murders of rival Adolfo “Big Al” Bruno and a police informant, according to court records filed in a Manhattan courthouse

Arillotta is the last and highest-profile defendant in the long-running case, which captured the public’s attention in Western Massachusetts and ultimately served to virtually erase the ranking mobsters from the local landscape.
