Bulger, Weeks exchange profanities

Near the end of a dramatic day of testimony in the racketeering trial of James “Whitey” Bulger, key prosecution witness Kevin Weeks and Bulger shared a heated exchange of words. Bulger’s attorney J.W. Carney Jr. questioned Weeks about the deal he made with prosecutors, in which he received a six-year sentence in exchange for testifying against Bulger.

The outburst between the gangster and his former protege was the second time Bulger has lost his temper during the trial.
