A federal jury Sunday convicted three mobsters in the shooting death of a New York City police detective during a stakeout at a Queens diner.

Federico (Fritzi) Giovanelli, 56, Steven Maltese, 55, and Carmine Gualtiere, 58, were convicted of killing Anthony Venditti and wounding his partner, Kathleen Burke, to protect a multimillion-dollar bookmaking enterprise. Two previous trials ended in hung juries.
