Mass. prosecutors mull state charges vs. Bulger

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Prosecutors in Massachusetts plan to meet with their federal counterparts to determine whether murder or other charges can be brought against James "Whitey" Bulger or his associates at the state level now that his federal trial is over.

A spokesman for Suffolk's District Attorney says the office is "always looking for evidence that can help us investigate and prosecute" homicides.

Bulger was convicted Monday in 11 killings. He's never been charged with murder in a Massachusetts court.

State prosecutors tell The Boston Globe Bulger's associates could also face trial, including one who allegedly took part in several slayings but was never charged.

Meanwhile, a second juror has described the heated deliberations. Janet Uhlar, a nurse and author from Eastham, says it was hard making decisions when the only evidence was testimony from gangsters.
