Defense attorneys for accused mob boss James Whitey Bulger tried to poke holes in the testimony of Bulger's alleged cohort, Stephen Flemmi.

Stephen Flemmi is serving life in prison after pleading guilty to ten murders, and has implicated Bulger in all of the deaths.Much of the questioning has surrounded two women Bulger allegedly killed: Flemmi's girlfriend, Deborah Davis, and Flemmi's stepdaughter, Deborah Hussey.

We heart the latest from the federal courthouse.
