Three Charged in Whitey Bulger Killing

According to the Wall Street Journal:

Three men, including a Mafia hit man, have been charged in the 2018 killing of Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger in a West Virginia prison, the Justice Department said Thursday.

The charges against Fotios “Freddy” Geas, Paul J. DeCologero and Sean McKinnon come nearly four years after Bulger’s killing, which raised questions about why the known “snitch” was placed in the general population instead of more protective housing. The men were charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

Bulger was beaten to death at USP Hazelton in October 2018 hours after he was transferred from a prison in Florida, where he had been serving a life sentence for 11 murders and other crimes. Prosecutors allege Messrs. Geas and DeCologero struck Bulger in the head multiple times and caused his death.

The Justice Department has also charged Mr. Geas, 55 years old, and Mr. DeCologero, 48, with aiding and abetting first-degree murder, along with assault resulting in serious bodily injury. Mr. Geas faces a separate charge for murder by a federal inmate serving a life sentence, and Mr. McKinnon, 36, is charged separately with making false statements to a federal agent.
