BOSTON (AP) -- The girlfriend of former Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger has filed a legal appeal aimed at shaving time off her prison sentence.
Catherine Greig says in a Wednesday legal filing that family of Bulger's alleged victims shouldn't have been allowed to speak at her sentencing.
She's serving an eight-year prison sentence at a low-security federal prison in Minnesota.
That sentence followed Greig's June guilty plea on charges related to helping Bulger stay on the run for 16 years.
The former Winter Hill Gang leader and FBI informant goes on trial next June for his alleged role in 19 murders.
Greig is asking for a resentencing, and says authorities also erred by miscalculating her involvement in fugitive harboring, and by imposing enhancements related to firearms and obstructing justice.
The U.S. Attorney's Office had no comment Wednesday.
A fire broke out early Wednesday evening at the Amtrol building on Division Road in West Warwick.
A man was found dead in a carbon monoxide-filled home in Coventry Wednesday night, according to police and firefighters.
A pedestrian was struck and killed while crossing the street in Warwick Wednesday evening.
As the temperature drops, the demand for space heaters goes up; but these small heating devices are already responsible for three deaths over the Thanksgiving holiday.
