Another guilty verdict in body-parts scandal

Christopher Aldorasi was found guilty Monday of nearly all charges for his part in a ring that made millions from selling stolen corpses from funeral homes.

Aldorasi was found guilty of 20 charges, including enterprise corruption, forgery, falsifying records and grand larceny. He was found not guilty on two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment.

Authorities say the ring sold more than 1,000 body parts stolen from corpses at funeral homes to several medical research companies. The ring reportedly made $12 million between 2001 and 2005.

Michael Mastromarino, the 44-year-old former oral surgeon and alleged mastermind of the operation, pleaded guilty to similar charges in March.

According to the Brooklyn district attorney's office, Aldorasi could face life in prison and may also be charged in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
