The New York Cardiologist faces a number of charges including selling prescription medications to pay to have a former employer’s office burned down, and a rival doctor murdered. District Attorney:
The investigation led to the discovery of a common link between [illegally sold drug] contraband and an unsolved February 25th arson in Great Neck, and even a subsequent murder-for-hire plot that was foiled by this investigation. The link is Dr. Anthony Moschetto, a practicing cardiologist in Great Neck who was the supplier and mastermind behind this elaborate scheme. At one point Dr. Moschetto even asked for the assault of his victim’s wife if she was present during the primary assault.
