• 'Rifleman' Flemmi could deal big blow to Bulger defense


    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) –  James "Whitey" Bulger's former hitman is preparing to take the stand and experts say it could deal a big blow to the defense.
    Stephen "The Rifleman" Flemmi was Bulger's righthand man. He is currently serving a life sentence for 10 murders, including his role in the death of his former girlfriend, Debra Davis.
    Flemmi is expected to implicate Bulger in all of those killings and testify that Bulger was a federal informant.
    Flemmi could  be on the stand as soon as Wednesday.
