BOSTON (AP) — Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi, the once-loyal partner of reputed Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger (BUHL’-jur), has returned to the witness stand to testify against Bulger.

Flemmi was back on the witness stand Friday morning. Prosecutors are expected to question him at length about Bulger’s alleged participation in numerous killings.

During his brief testimony Thursday, Flemmi said both he and Bulger were partners in the Winter Hill Gang, a violent Irish mob. He also said he and Bulger were longtime FBI informants who squealed on the rival Mafia as well as assorted criminals in South Boston.

Early Friday, Flemmi described his plea agreement with prosecutors. He pleaded guilty to 10 killings and other charges and was sentenced to life in prison. The agreement spared him the possibility of the death penalty for killings in Oklahoma and Florida.
