James “Pudgy'' Fiorillo testified Tuesday that he helped get rid of a handgun and car used in the killing of Konstantinos “Gus'' Boulis. Fiorillo also says he helped conduct surveillance at Boulis's Fort Lauderdale office the night of the killing.


Fiorillo recently pleaded guilty to murder conspiracy charges and is now a prosecution witness. He is testifying at a hearing on whether to revoke $500,000 bail for another suspect, Anthony “Big Tony'' Moscatiello.

Expected to testify Wednesday is Adam Kidan, a former business partner of disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff in the purchase of a casino cruise fleet from Boulis. Both served prison time for fraud in the deal.
