    This is an undated FBI handout photo of reputed Massachusetts mobster Francis "Frank" Salemme, who was captured earlier this year after living in Florida for almost a year and brought back to Boston to stand trial on charges of alleged racketeering and other charges. Jan. 1, 2016.

    Former New England mob boss Frank "Cadillac" Salemme and another associate were indicted in connection with the 1993 murder of a South Boston club owner.

    Both Salemme, 83, and Paul Weadick, 61, of Burlington, were indicted on one count of murder each of a federal witness, Steven A. DiSarro, whose remains were recovered from behind a Providence, Rhode Island, mill earlier this year.

    Salemme was arrested in August in connection with a criminal complaint, while Weadick was arrested Friday morning. Both are expected to appear in a federal court in Boston Friday afternoon.

    The indictment alleges Salemme and Weadick murdered DiSarro to prevent the club owner from communicating with federal law enforcement officials about Salemme and others.
