Today’s somber weather matches the mood of this week’s news, from the chilling cross-examination of James “Whitey” Bulger’s long-time partner Stephen Flemmi, to a postponed probable cause hearing for former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, to the horrific kidnapping and murder of a young South Boston woman.  We discuss these stories in our Week in Review.

Guests

WBUR, “According to police, Lord is one of three women attacked in fewer than 24 hours in that neighborhood. In the first attack at 5 a.m., a woman was punched in the face. An hour later, at 6:00 a.m., Lord was captured on video at the the first ATM.”

WBUR, “Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will be back in court next month after a judge agreed to delay a probable cause hearing to allow prosecutors more time to present evidence to a grand jury.”

WBUR, “One of prosecutors’ key witnesses in the murder and racketeering trial of James “Whitey” Bulger takes the stand for the fifth day Wednesday. Stephen Flemmi, a convicted murderer and Bulger’s former criminal partner, will face more questions from the defense.”
