A federal jury convicted Bulger in August in a racketeering indictment that included murder, extortion, money-laundering and weapons charges. The jury convicted Bulger in 11 out of the 19 killings he was charged with participating in during the 1970s and '80s but acquitted him of seven killings and issued a "no finding" in Davis' murder.

Flemmi testified that Bulger strangled Davis, but his testimony was contradicted by another Bulger associate who said Flemmi once said he himself had "accidentally" strangled Davis.

"I hope Whitey dies the same way my sister did — gasping for breath as he takes his last breath," said Steve Davis.

Prosecutor Brian Kelly said Bulger has been getting arrested since Harry Truman was president and called him "a little sociopath."

"The carnage that he has caused is grotesque," Kelly said.

"The victims in this case will never be able to regain what he has taken from them, but hopefully they will be able to take some solace from the fact that he will spend the rest of his miserable life in jail," he said.
