(NECN) - The trial of reputed Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger begins in less than two weeks.
There are 82 names on the list of witnesses who could be called to testify.
It includes former associates, such as Stephen Flemmi, the family members of alleged victims, plus law enforcement officials who spent years trying to track down Bulger.

Thursday, Bulger's attorneys also filed a motion to limit the scope of testimony of family members of Bulger's alleged murder victims.
The defense says the testimony would only serve to stir up emotions in the jury.
Bulger is accused of participating in 19 murders.
