Lawyers for reputed gangster James “Whitey” Bulger wantprosecutors to turn over evidence they claim implicates two former associates in four killings that he is charged with. In a letter to prosecutors on Friday, defense lawyers asked prosecutors to turn over two postcards that a Charlestown gangster allegedly sent to the late Jeremiah O’Sullivan, a former US prosecutor in Boston, detailing the associates’ involvement.
