Cardiologist Tried To Have Rival Doctor Killed

A Long Island cardiologist had the office of another doctor torched, then hired someone who turned out to be an undercover police officer in a failed attempt to have the doctor hurt or killed, authorities said.

Dr. Anthony J. Moschetto allegedly used drugs, guns and blank prescriptions as currency while trying to have the other doctor harmed amid a professional dispute, investigators said Wednesday. Moschetto first allegedly hired two men to set fire to the man's office; it happened beneath a sprinkler and damage was minimal, prosecutors said.

He was willing to pay $5,000 to have him beaten and put in the hospital for a couple of months and pay $20,000 to have him killed," Nassau County Assistant District Attorney Anne Donnelly said of Moschetto's intentions. "He wanted to put him out of business so he could get his business."

"Dr. Moschetto is a hidden monster living in the North Shore area who has no respect for law and life," said Nassau County Police Department Acting Commissioner Thomas Krumpter. "He had enough weapons to provide a small army means to wreak harm."

The Drug Enforcement Administration also was involved in the investigation, which began in December.
