BOSTON (AP) - James "Whitey" Bulger's lawyers have submitted a new, pared-down witness list for his racketeering trial.
Bulger's lawyers had submitted a list with the names of more than 80 potential witnesses. Their new list, filed early Tuesday, contains 37 names. It includes a man who was wrongly convicted in a gangland slaying because of FBI corruption.
Joseph Salvati spent more than 30 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit after corrupt FBI agents withheld evidence.
The prosecution is still presenting its witnesses but could wrap up by the end of this week. The defense could begin presenting its case early next week.
A former FBI agent is expected back on the stand Tuesday.
The 83-year-old Bulger is accused of playing a role in 19 killings in the 1970s and '80s.
