Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa, the so-called "Mafia Cops" serving life sentences in federal prison for moonlighting for the Mob, have been split up, according to a story by John Marzulli of the New York Daily News.
The two men, partners as detectives on the New York Police force, had been sharing a prison cell, locked down 23 hours a day. Caracappa, 67, recently was moved to Victorville Penitentiary in California. He had asked for a prison assignment on the East Coast. Eppolito, 60, is awaiting a placement decision from the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.
