The multiple-murder trial of 83-year-old Whitey Bulger is the kind of real-life drama that would seem excessive even in a contemporary film or TV series. Two years ago, Bulger was arrested in Santa Monica, California after 16 years as one of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted. He's now facing a jury in Boston, charged with 19 murders in the 1970's and 1980's. Shelley Murphy has been attending the trial. She's a reporter for the Boston Globe and co-author of Whitey Bulger: America's Most Wanted Gangster and the Manhunt that Brought Him to Justice.
