A jury that began its deliberations on Tuesday has yet to reach a verdict in the case of James "Whitey" Bulger.

Jurors have spent nearly 30 hours this week weighing Bulger’s guilt on a 32-count indictment that includes charges for racketeering, murder, extortion, money laundering and illegal gun possession.

The 83-year-old Bulger was arrested in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011 after 16 years on the run.

Bulger fled after corrupt FBI agent John Connolly tipped him off just before law enforcement acted on an indictment.

His trial featured more than 70 witnesses who testified over more than seven weeks.

Deliberations are expected to resume Monday morning at federal court.
