"Charlie M." is most likely a reference to the "M&M" murders that Tony Spilotro--The real-life Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci's character)--was involved in.


In 1963 Spilotro participated in what became known as the M&M murders. Burglars Billy McCarthy and Jimmy Miraglia (M & M) became targets of the Chicago Mob after committing a shooting in a known mob hangout that resulted in the deaths of two mob associates. Relying on information from Frank Cullotta, (an associate of M&M and a lifelong friend of Anthony Spilotro) McCarthy was snatched off the streets by Spilotro and noted hitmen Charles Nicoletti and Felix "Milwaukee Phil" Alderisio. They then proceeded to torture McCarthy to give up the name of his accomplice. After having his head placed in a vise by Spilotro, McCarthy gave up his accomplice Miraglia and was killed, with Miraglia's murder following later on. McCarthy's murder was infamously recreated in the film Casino. It is believed that Spilotro became a made man as a result of this hit.--Source
