Former Mafia boss Francis "Cadillac Frank" Salemme will go on trial in 2018.

The trial of former New England Mafia boss Francis P. “Cadillac Frank” Salemme on a charge of killing a federal witness in 1993 will take about three weeks, newly filed court papers show.

Salemme, 84, and Paul Weadick, 62, are scheduled to stand trial in May in US District Court in Boston for the murder of club owner Steven DiSarro. Both men have pleaded not guilty.
