Police arrest mafia boss wounded in ambush over love affair
'Mario Lo Russo shot because he was seeing a prisoner's wife'11 March, 20:07
Police on Monday night arrested Fabio Cardillo, 35, the brother-in-law of the woman in question, on suspicion of being the gunman in the ambush.
Also on Monday night, they arrested Luciano Pompeo, 28, and Valerio Nappella, 37, on suspicion of the non-fatal stabbing on Sunday of Giovanni Lista, a relative of Cardillo, carried out to avenge the Saturday night shooting.
Mario Lo Russo managed to leave the scene of the ambush in the alleged shooter's car, and drove himself to hospital. Police nabbed him soon after he was released.
His brother was jailed in 2007, and has reportedly turned State's witness.
