American mobster’s trial nearing an end

James Whitey Bulger, who had been wanted for 17 years before his capture in 2011, is charged with 19 counts of murder.

    The trial of one of the United States' most notorious gangsters, James "Whitey" Bulger, is nearing an end.

    He is accused of 19 murders and was a wanted fugitive for 17 years before his capture in 2011.

    But there is a side of Bulger that the jury in Boston will not get to see.
