Bulger's lawyers pare down mob trial witness list

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com/AP) — James "Whitey" Bulger's lawyers have submitted a new, pared-down witness list for his racketeering trial.

Bulger's lawyers had submitted a list with the names of more than 80 potential witnesses. Their new list, filed early Tuesday, contains 37 names. It includes a man who was wrongly convicted in a gangland slaying because of FBI corruption.

Joseph Salvati spent more than 30 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit after corrupt FBI agents withheld evidence.

The defense also filed another motion to exclude any evidence found inside Bulger's Santa Monica, Calif., apartment.

The prosecution is still presenting its witnesses but could wrap up by the end of this week. The defense could begin presenting its case early next week.

A former FBI agent is expected back on the stand Tuesday. Stephen "The Rifleman" Flemmi is expected to take the stand Wednesday.

The 83-year-old Bulger is accused of playing a role in 19 killings in the 1970s and '80s.

    When he's not slaying three-headed beasts with his olive-wood club, Hercules carves out time for the little people. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson treated fans from the Harlem Boys and Girls Club and Big Brothers Big Sisters NYC to an advance screening of his new film. I caught up with the larger-than-life action hero after the big surprise.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
