NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — The son of slain mob associate Sylvester “Sally Daz” Zottola was arrested Monday in connection to a murder-for-hire plot to kill his father and brother, prosecutors said.

Anthony Zottola Sr. was arrested, along with three others, by federal authorities in connection to a pair of shootings last year.

In the dual hits, Sally Daz was killed as he waited in line at a McDonald’s drive-through in the Bronx and Zottola’s brother, Salvatore, was shot outside his Bronx home but survived.

No motive was announced but the indictment alleged the murder of Sally Daz was “willfully, deliberately, maliciously and with premeditation.”

Five co-conspirators in the shootings, which happened just three months apart, have already been arrested.
