NEW YORK- A federal indictment unsealed Thursday charges 32 people with racketeering crimes, including people described as the acting boss, members and associates of the Genovese organized crime family.

The 42-count indictment says the defendants engaged in crimes for more than a decade.

Those crimes include murder, violent extortion of individuals and businesses, labor racketeering, obstruction of justice, narcotics trafficking, money laundering and firearms trafficking.

Federal prosecutors planned to release details at a noon news conference.
