Ex-Bulger Cohort to Spend 3rd Day on Witness Stand

Whitey BulgerBOSTON (AP) — A former enforcer for James “Whitey” Bulger is expected to face more tough cross-examination by Bulger’s lawyers when he returns to the witness stand.

James Martorano, who admitted killing 20 people, is set to continue testifying Wednesday.

Earlier this week, Martorano described a string of killings he said Bulger either ordered or participated in, including the 1982 killing of Boston businessman John Callahan.

Martorano said he reluctantly agreed to kill Callahan at the insistence of Flemmi and Bulger, who said Callahan would likely finger the gang in the 1981 killing of Tulsa, Okla., businessman Roger Wheeler. He said Bulger and Flemmi said Callahan had to be killed because he wouldn’t hold up if questioned about Wheeler’s killing.

Martorano said he stopped killing people after he fatally shot Callahan in 1982.
