The Whitey Gang's All Here: The Crime Partner, The Hit Man And The 'Muscle' All Line Up To Testify Against James 'Whitey' Bulger As His Trial For 19 Murders Begins

Louise Boyle at the British newspaper the Daily Mail offers a piece on the witnesses lining up to testify against Boston Irish mob boss Whitey Bulger (seen in the above photos released by the FBI).

The trial of notorious crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger is set to begin this week with a list of witnesses that appears to have been drawn from mob central casting.

Prosecutors plan to call a collection of infamous figures, including Bulger's former partner Stephen "The Rifleman" Flemmi, who is now serving a life sentence for ten murders and admitted pulling the teeth out of some of the gang's victims, including a girlfriend who was also his stepdaughter.  

Former hit man John Martorano, who has admitted killing 20 people, will also take the stand, as will Kevin Weeks, a former Bulger lieutenant who eventually led authorities to half a dozen bodies.   

Bulger, 83, is charged with playing a role in 19 murders. Jury selection is scheduled to begin on Tuesday in Boston.
