Kin to testify in Mass. on Bulger girlfriend bail
BOSTON -- People who say their relatives were killed by former Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger are expected to testify against a request for bail from the girlfriend accused of helping him elude authorities for 16 years.
A judge has indicated that during Catherine Greig's (gregz) bail hearing Wednesday she'll allow testimony from relatives of people prosecutors say were murdered by Bulger.
Greig's lawyer has objected to the unusual request, arguing they're Bulger's victims, not hers.
Bulger and Greig were arrested last month in Santa Monica, Calif. Bulger is charged with participating in 19 murders. Greig is charged with harboring a fugitive.
Tom Donahue says his dad was killed by Bulger in 1982. He says he plans to tell the judge Greig helped Bulger escape capture and added to his family's pain.
Bulger has pleaded not guilty.
