Anthony Nicodemo

In the midst of the federal trial against mob boss Joseph Ligambi and his associates, Anthony Nicodemo has been charged with killing a man outside of his home.

Police responded to the 2800 block of South Iseminger Street at 2:55 p.m. Dec. 12 for a report of a person with a gun, Officer Tanya Little of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. On location, officers discovered Gino DiPietro, 50, of that block, with multiple gunshot wounds to his body. DiPietro was transported to Hahnemann Hospital, but was pronounced dead at 3:21 p.m.

Nicodemo, 41, of the 3200 block of South 17th Street, was arrested and charged with murder, conspiracy of murder, possession of an instrument of crime and firearm violations Friday, according to court records. He is being held without bail. 

Nicodemo pled guilty to conspiracy to promoting gambling and laundering money for his role in a sports gambling ring that operated in Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for more than a year until New Jersey authorities shut it down in November 2007, according to the Office of the Attorney General in New Jersey.

“Your incompetent , worthless "Cuz" is going facing 2 hells: Here on earth when he flips and goes into protection and has to live a normal anonymous life away from his family and when he is judged. GOD is LOVE and forgives but he does not forgive murder. Pick up a Bible and read it. He is going straight to hell and will hear and feel nothing but anguish, pain, darkness and sorrow for the rest of that so called eternal life he's facing. Says alot about you backing him. You are probably facing the same destiny as well along with the scum parents that raised you.”
