Desi Sideropoulos, a secretary in the Boston FBI for decades, said that she was told in the 1980s to destroy a document showing a special agent in charge wanted to end the FBI’s relationship with Bulger. Also, John Martorano, Bulger’s former associate, was called again and testified that Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi told him it was he who killed Debra Davis, his longtime girlfriend. Bulger then declared he would not take the stand because he was banned from discussing his immunity agreement, and he called the trial a sham.

Expected Monday

The lawyers will present their closing arguments, which could last more than six hours. Assistant US Attorney Fred Wyshak will present his case first, and defense attorneys J.W. Carney Jr. and Hank Brennan will split their allotted three hours. The prosecution team will then present a rebuttal argument.
