Bulger Girlfriend Faces More Charges

A Massachusetts prosecutor has told a judge that the government expects to bring additional charges against the longtime girlfriend of former reputed Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger.

Catherine Greig has already been charged with conspiracy to harbor a fugitive by helping Bulger evade capture for more than 16 years. Bulger is accused of participating in 19 murders. They were caught in Santa Monica, Calif., in June and have pleaded not guilty.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack Pirozzolo says it's still being discussed whether new charges against Greig would be brought in Massachusetts or California. Greig's lawyer says that if additional charges are brought in California, that case would likely eventually be combined with the current case against her.
