Federal prosecutors say retired NY police detectives worked for the mob
Two retired New York City police detectives who are accused of working as Mafia hitmen while still serving on the force are due to appear in court today. They were arrested Wednesday in Las Vegas and are charged with eight murders, two attempted murders, obstructing justice, distributing drugs and other charges. Prosecutors say the two gave confidential information to the mob for more than a decade. Officials also claim the men once kidnapped a mob figure, stuffed him in a car trunk and delivered him to a Mafia underboss who then tortured and killed the man. A lawyer for one of the men says prosecutors are "relying on the words of rats."
