The murder and racketeering trial of James “Whitey” Bulger will turn its focus on the FBI’s 700-page file on the ex-mob boss next week, the Boston Herald reports [2].

The trial began this week and took a recess for the weekend beginning Thursday. 

The records are expected to shine light on Bulger’s relationship with convicted FBI Agent John Connolly Jr.

Connolly is serving a 40-year sentence for leaking information to Bulger, which led to the murder of a businessman, John Callahan.

Bulger’s trial Thursday included emotional testimony from survivors of Bulger’s gang.
