Federal RICO charges, USA

Where: US Early 2000s

Okay, here's the scenario:

A very wealthy business man laundered money through a bank in California. Canon is very iffy on where the business was based, but he was caught in New Hampshire.

The president of the bank discovered the money laundering and gave the business man time to turn himself in. Instead, the president and his wife were murdered.

The laundering was found out about four years later, and the laundering had continued. The man was arrested, and faced federal charges.

I just need a confirmation that he would be charged under the RICO act, for the money laundering and the subsequent double murder. I don't really understand the legalese I keep running into.
