Former mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger will see a familiar face take the stand today in his murder and racketeering trial in Boston, Reuters reports.

A former hit man plans to testify against his ex-boss and uncover grizzly details of Bulger’s reign of terror.

Bulger, 83, faces a 32-count indictment stemming from his activities as the reputed boss of “Winter Hill Gang.”

On Friday, Richard O’Brien, a bookmaker who made illegal bets on sports, testified Friday that Bulger was a threatening force.

“Rather than being in the bookmaking business and taking the unknown gamble, they would take rent like you would for an apartment,” O’Brien testified.
