BOSTON (AP) — The longtime girlfriend of late Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger has completed her federal prison sentence and moved in with her twin sister.

WBZ-TV reports that federal agents removed Catherine Greig’s electronic monitoring bracelet Thursday.

The 69-year-old Greig spent the last year of her sentence living under home confinement with Bulger’s relatives in the suburb of Hingham.

Greig’s attorney told The Boston Globe he is happy that she is now free.

Greig joined Bulger on the run in 1995 shortly after he fled Boston to evade a federal racketeering indictment.

The couple was captured in 2011 in California. Bulger was killed in prison in 2018.
