JACKSON-Antonio Romeo DiSantillo, owner of the now close Casanova Ristorante and Romeo’s Plaza in Jackson has applied to the township to receive a liquor license for the currently closed restaurant.
The restaurant was the scene of what Ocean County Prosecutors are calling a “Murder for hire” plot.
According to testimony in court, DiSantillo claimed an associate, Hector Calderon shot and killed Peyman Sanandaji. Court filings show Romeo DiSantillo owed Sanandaji $140,000.
Closing arguments in the case are expected to be heard today and a verdict is expected to be handed down in the near future.
