BOSTON —

Jurors in the racketeering trial of reputed crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger will head back to federal court for a fourth day of deliberations.

The 12-member jury is set to resume deliberations Friday. Jurors have worked on the case for more than 20 hours since getting it Tuesday.

The 83-year-old Bulger is charged in a sweeping racketeering indictment with playing a role in 19 killings during the 1970s and `80s while he allegedly led the Winter Hill Gang.

Bulger was one of the nation's most wanted fugitives after fleeing Boston in 1994. He was finally captured in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011.

Prosecutors said many of the crimes allegedly took place while Bulger was an FBI informant and was being protected by corrupt agents. Bulger's lawyers strongly deny that he was an informant.
