Jurors in the racketeering trial of reputed crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger have gone home for the weekend after deliberating for a fourth day without reaching a verdict.
Jurors in the Whitey Bulger trial have been allowed to examine a machine gun that was among a cache of weapons Bulger allegedly hid in South Boston.
The judge says she’ll hear from lawyers about it after Wednesday’s testimony ends.

William David Lindholm testified Wednesday in Bulger’s racketeering trial in Boston. He said Bulger’s associate played a game like “Russian Roulette” with him in 1983.
Michael Solimando says Whitey Bulger held a gun to his head and a machine gun to his groin and warned him not to tell police.
In court Thursday, the forensic expert who dug Debra Davis out of her grave on the banks of the Neponset River showed jurors pictures of Debbie’s skull.
