Bulger girlfriend detained in RI
CENTRAL FALLS, RI -- The girlfriend of James "Whitey" Bulger is being detained in Rhode Island.
A warden says Bulger companion Catherine Greig is at the Wyatt Detention Facility in Central Falls.
The 60-year-old Greig is charged with harboring a fugitive. She and Bulger were arrested last Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif. after 16 years on the lam.
The warden, Brian Murphy, had no further details on Greig's detention.
Greig has also retained a private attorney to represent her. Brockton attorney Kevin Reddington filed an appearance for Greig on Monday. He did not immediately return messages. During an initial court appearance on Friday, Greig requested court-appointed counsel.
Greig is due back in U.S. District Court in Boston on Thursday for a detention hearing.
Federal marshals in Boston did not immediately return messages.
