A man who was considered to be the surrogate son of James “Whitey” Bulger testified Monday against the accused Boston mobster, describing a cold killer who stopped at nothing to protect himself.

“I was with him for 20 years,” Kevin Weeks, who was a critical witness, told the court during Bulger’s murder and racketeering trial, ABC News reports [2].

Weeks is accused of helping Bulger murder Brian “Balloonhead” Halloran for going to the FBI with information about Bulger, ABC News reported.
