New York Cardiologist Targeted Doctor

A suburban New York cardiologist has been charged in connection with a failed scheme to have another physician hurt or killed. According to prosecutors, Dr. Anthony Moschetto, 54, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to criminal solicitation, conspiracy, burglary, arson, criminal prescription sale and weapons charges in connection to what prosecutors called a plot to take out a rival doctor on Long Island. He was released after posting $2 million bond and surrendering his passport. Two other men (identified as James Chmela, 43, and James Kalamaras, 41) were named as accomplices.
