BOSTON — A Boston mob associate who spent years on the lam living the life of an Idaho rancher faces sentencing in the attempted murder of a man who went on to become the boss of the New England Mafia. Enrico Ponzo was convicted in November of several federal crimes, including the 1989 attempted killing of Francis "Cadillac Frank" Salemme. Ponzo fled Massachusetts in 1994, first to Arizona, and later to Idaho, where he spent more than a decade as a cattle rancher and stay-at-home father. SENT: 130 words.
