BOSTON (AP) — A former enforcer for James "Whitey" Bulger has been grilled by Bulger's attorney about varying stories he told over the years about killings he says were orchestrated by Bulger and his gang.

John Martorano, who admitted killing 20 people, testified Wednesday in Bulger's racketeering trial in Boston.

Bulger's lawyer branded Martorano as a chronic liar, repeatedly pointing out inconsistencies between what he told investigators in the late '90s and what he told jurors this week.

Martorano wrapped up three days of testimony after prosecutor Fred Wyshak tried to rehabilitate him in the eyes of jurors. Wyshak went through 11 murders and asked him if he and Bulger were involved in each. "Correct," Martorano replied each time.

The 83-year-old Bulger is charged with playing a role in the killings of 19 people.
