Aniellio Paretti








Aniel­lio Paret­ti was a gun­man for the Navy St gang. He was involved with the mur­der of Joseph ‘Chuck’ Naz­zaro.

On March 16th, 1917, Joseph ‘Chuck’ Naz­zaro was shot and killed in Yonkers NY. Naz­zaro had been spot­ted talk­ing to the Morel­lo gang in Harlem, and was sen­tenced to death by the Neapoli­tan gangs in Brook­lyn. Fevro­la, Sgroia, and the Paret­ti broth­ers, all from the Navy St gang lured Naz­zaro out to Yonkers under the pre­tence of killing Fevro­la for giv­ing the police infor­ma­tion. They then shot Naz­zaro and left his body on the trol­ley tracks.

Aniel­lio Paret­ti, of 23 Sher­man Av, Brook­lyn, was tried for the mur­der in Novem­ber 1921, he was sen­tenced to the death house in Sing Sing. His lawyer imme­di­ate­ly appealed against the deci­sion, and on Jan­u­ary 3rd, 1923, the Court of Appeals ordered a retri­al. DA Weeks then had the indict­ment dropped, and Paret­ti was a free man. He was released from Sing Sing in July 1923.
