Lucchese crime family underboss Steven “Wonder Boy” Crea, 73, was sentenced to life in prison for murder and racketeering.

Another trial last year which lasted six weeks, also found Crea, Matthew Madonna, 84, of the Bronx, Christopher Londonio, 46, of Hartsdale, and Terrence Caldwell, 62, of Manhattan, guilty of the 2013 murder of Michael Meldish, 62.

The killing was ordered by Madonna and Crea for the disrespect of Meldish by him not collecting debts owed to the boss. Meldish was no saint however as he was suspected of carrying out over a dozen gang murders.

The hit was executed by Caldwell and Londonio in the Bronx on a quiet residential street.

U.S. District Judge Cathy Seibel ordered Crea to forfeit $1 million for his felonies and pay a $400,000 fine.

Last month, Madonna, Londonio, and Caldwell were sentenced to life in prison.

Previously sentenced were:

Crea’s son, Steven D. Crea, 48, New Rochelle, conspiracy to commit murder, 13 years in prison;
Paul Cassano, 41, Yonkers, conspiracy to commit assault, 18 months in prison;
Robert Camilli, 63, Briarcliff Manor, extortionate extension of credit, one year supervised release;
John Incatasciato, 45, Elmsford, extortionate extension of credit, two years supervised release;
Joseph Venice, 59, Yonkers, racketeering conspiracy, 18 months.
