CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) - The federal corruption retrial of a former top Long Island official and his wife will begin Oct. 9.

U.S. District Judge Joan Azrack set the date Thursday for former Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and his wife, Linda.

Their first trial ended in a mistrial in May. A jury in Central Islip (EYE’-slihp) failed to reach a verdict after nine days of deliberations.

Prosecutors say they’ll retrial the Manganos on all charges.

An indictment alleges that the Republican politician helped Long Island businessman Harendra Singh obtain guaranteed loans in exchange for lavish gifts.

Prosecutors say Linda Mangano was given a $100,000-a-year, no-show job at one of Singh’s restaurants.

The Manganos said that any favors were because of their personal ties with Singh.
