La. man indicted in alleged tax fraud scheme

Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A landfill executive awaiting trial on charges he conspired with his brother-in-law to embezzle nearly $1 million from a New Orleans-based construction management company has been indicted on new charges stemming from an alleged tax fraud scheme.

Dominick Fazzio, a tax preparer who also serves as chief financial officer of the River Birch landfill, was charged Thursday with plotting to illegally reduce the amount of federal taxes paid by the owner of an oilfield services company by more than $3.5 million.

The new indictment also brings new fraud, conspiracy and money laundering charges against Fazzio's brother-in-law, Mark Titus.

Titus already has pleaded guilty to conspiring with Fazzio to embezzle money from Titus' former employer, Garner Services LLC. Titus was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison.
