Alleged Mobster Charged With Murder In South Philadelphia Slaying

Robert Moran and Joseph A. Slobodzian at the Philadelphia Inquirer offer a report on the apparent mob murder in South Philadelphia.

Anthony Nicodemo, a reputed mob soldier, was charged Thursday night in the daytime slaying Wednesday of Gino DiPietro outside his home in South Philadelphia, city police said.
Authorities matched a bullet fragment found on DiPietro's clothes with a gun found in an automobile registered to Nicodemo, a police source confirmed Thursday.

Nicodemo, 41, of the 3200 block of South 17th Street, was charged with murder and related offenses.
Also Thursday, a federal judge said he would individually question the 15 jurors in the federal racketeering trial of seven alleged Philadelphia mobsters when court resumes Tuesday to see if they had been exposed to news coverage of the slaying.

DiPietro, 50, was gunned down in the 2800 block of South Iseminger Street shortly before 3 p.m. A black Honda SUV was seen speeding away, and police later matched the description with Nicodemo's 2011 Honda Pilot, which was parked in the block where he lives with his wife and two children. A gun was found in the Honda.
