Jonathan Massari on trial for Montreal Mafia hits - update

The man who killed Rocco Sollecito and the Falduto brothers became an informant for the Sûreté du Québec in 2019. He began testifying in Massari’s trial this week. He said Massari introduced him into a group of men led by Salvatore Scoppa, who maintained a list of people he wanted killed. The first on that list was Lorenzo Giordano. The informant said he didn't participate in that murder, but Massari told him Dominico Scarfo was the gunman, while Massari acted as the getaway driver. The informant testified he personally shot Rocco Sollecito in Laval before jumping on the back of a motorcycle driven by Massari.
The trial of Jonathan Massari, accused of taking part in four killings linked to the Montreal Mafia has begun. Massari is charged with first-degree murder in the killings of Lorenzo Giordano and Rocco Sollecito, gunned down in Laval on March 1, 2016 and May 27, 2016, respectively. Massari is also charged in the deaths of brothers Giuseppe Falduto, 23, and Vincenzo Falduto, 30. Massari faces three counts of conspiracy, alleging he planned the killings with Dominico Scarfo, 50, and  Salvatore Scoppa. The hit man secretly recorded a conversation with Massari. Massari was the right-hand man of Salvatore Scoppa, head of the Calabrians.
