Trial date set in case against Bulger girlfriend

Posted:

A judge has set an April trial date for the woman charged with helping former Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger elude authorities for 16 years.

Catherine Greig, Bulger's longtime girlfriend, is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to a charge of conspiracy to harbor and conceal a fugitive.

During a brief status conference in federal court Thursday, a judge scheduled Greig's trial to begin April 23. Greig did not attend the hearing.

Her lawyer says she was in love with Bulger and didn't know the extent of his alleged crimes when she left Boston with him in 1995.

On Wednesday, prosecutors said in a court filing that they plan to seek a new indictment against Greig. Her lawyer declined to comment on potential new charges.
