Mob Cops Get Life for Gangland Murders

A New York judge has sentenced two former NYPD detectives to life in prison for their convictions in eight gangland murders.

Former NYPD detectives Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa were sentenced Friday in Brooklyn federal court after telling the judge they are innocent.

But the son of one of their victims had a different idea, telling the former cops: "May you have a long life in prison."

Prosecutors said Eppolito and Caracappa moonlighted as hitmen for the Luchese crime family while on the force during the 1980s.
