Six men plead guilty to conspiracy to murder Bonanno Boss Salvatore Montagna

"It seems the gangland killing of former Bonanno crime family boss Salvatore Montagna has been solved.

Yesterday, at the courthouse in Laval, Quebec, six men pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of taking part in the conspiracy to murder Montagna after he sought to take control of the Mafia in Montreal.
Desjardins used to be a right-hand man to Montreal mob boss Vito Rizzuto. The six men - Vittorio Mirarchi (38); Jack Simpson (73); Calogero Milioto (44); Pietro Magistrale (64); Steven Fracas (31); and Steven D’Addario (38) — admitted their role in the conspiracy to kill Montagna, who was shot dead on November 24, 2011.

Their leader, 62-year-old Montreal crime boss Raynald Desjardins, had already pleaded guilty to the conspiracy last year.
