Jury selected in Bulger case

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – All 18 jurors in the trial of reputed Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger have been selected.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys completed jury selection Tuesday, choosing 12 regular jurors and six alternates. Jurors chose 11 men and seven women.

Bulger is accused of participating in 19 murders in the 1970s and '80s.

The 83-year-old Bulger was one of the nation's most wanted fugitives after he fled Boston in 1994. He was captured in 2011 in Santa Monica, Calif., after more than 16 years on the run.

Opening statements are expected Wednesday morning.
