Fourteen reputed Chicago mob figures were indicted Monday on charges of plotting at least 18 murders, including the 1986 slaying of the crime organization's top man in Las Vegas, Tony "The Ant" Spilotro, who was buried alive in a cornfield.

Those indicted included 63-year-old James Marcello, who the FBI says is the head of the Chicago mob, and Joey "The Clown" Lombardo, 75, long alleged to be one of the top leaders of organized crime in the city. Authorities believe Lombardo is still in Chicago.

"This unprecedented indictment puts a `hit' on the mob," U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald said in a statement. "After so many years, it lifts the veil of secrecy and exposes the violent underworld of organized crime."
