The murder and racketeering case against accused mobster James ‘Whitey” Bulger may have reached its final days as prosecutors and defense attorneys prepare to present lengthy closing arguments today, the Associated Press wrote.

The nearly eight-week trial will give way to closing arguments after jurors heard testimony about 19 killings in which Bulger is accused of being involved.

It has been a long time coming. The 83-year-old man fled Boston ahead of an indictment, and he remained one of the most wanted fugitives until he was found in California in 2011.

Judge Denise Casper has given each side three hours and 15 minutes to present closing arguments.

The jury is expected to begin deliberating Tuesday.
