Dig at "mob cemetery" to resume

November 22, 2010 9:48:11 AM PST
The FBI plans to resume digging in a field in New York used by mobsters as a burial ground. FBI spokesman James Margolin announced late Friday that the agency would resume digging at the East Farmingdale industrial park where the body of a mobster was found buried. Earlier in the day, two men convicted of killing him were sentenced.

Alphonse "Allie Boy" Persico and John "Jackie" DeRoss were ordered to spend the rest of their lives in prison. They were convicted in 2007 of ordering the 1999 killing of Colombo underboss William "Wild Bill" Cutolo.

Cutolo's decomposed remains were discovered Oct. 6 during an FBI agents excavation in search of three bodies that were reportedly buried there. The FBI abandoned the search after 12 days of digging.
