New York – A cardiologist has been accused of attempting to have a rival doctor killed. Authorities say that Dr. Anthony J. Moschetto hired two men to initially set fire to the office of the doctor whom he sought to have hurt or killed but failed. Moschetto reportedly used drugs and blank prescriptions as part of the currency provided to those he contracted to harm the doctor.
According to an Associated Press (AP) report, the Long Island cardiologist also hired someone to kill the doctor who turned out to be an undercover police officer.
Nassau County Assistant District Attorney Anne Donnelly stated of Moschetto, “He was willing to pay $5,000 to have him beaten and put in the hospital for a couple of months and pay $20,000 to have him killed… He wanted to put him out of business so he could get his business.”
The alleged victim was reportedly a former partner of Moschetto. An order of protection has been issued for he and his wife.
Moschetto, who was arraigned Wednesday, has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges filed against him in the case.
