Bulger defense team's witness list includes authors, alleged victims' families

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- James "Whitey" Bulger's defense team revealed the witnesses they may call during his trial Thursday.

The list consists of 78 names, including relatives of Bulger's alleged victims.

Other names include former U.S. Attorney and Gov. Bill Weld, Steve "The Rifleman" Flemmi's brother, and FBI Chief Robert Muller.

The list also includes authors who wrote books about the Bulger case, such as the authors of "Black Mass," as well as talk show host and Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr.

Another interesting name on the list is Judge Richard Stearns. He was the original judge on the case, but was removed amid allegations of bias due to Judge Stearns' time as a federal prosecutor.
