Italian Police said a group of Calabrian mafia assassins beat a rival with a spade and fed him alive to pigs.

In a statement, the court in the southern city of Reggio Calabria said the murder of Francesco Raccosta most likely happened in March 2012.

Investigators arrested one of Raccosta's suspected killers after they caught him bragging about the murder in a telephone wiretap.

The murder was believed to be a part of a mob war between the rivals for control of the criminal activity in the area near the town of Oppido Mamertina, which is located on the "toe" of the Italian boot.
