(NECN) – Wednesday, Special Agent Jim Marra will be back on the stand in the James ‘Whitey’ Bulger trial.
     
This is after an emotional day of testimony, as family members of three of Bulger's alleged victims recounted how they learned their loved ones were missing or dead.
     
Later Wednesday, Special Agent John Morris may take the stand.
     
He was the supervisor of John Connolly, who prosecutors say was Bulger's handler as an FBI informant.
     
The defense maintains Bulger never acted as an informant.

Our Bulger insider, Attorney Margaret McLean, joined NECN to talk about recent developments in the case.

She said that the government is building the blocks and they will need Morris to link together evidence and testimonies.

She said that the jurors can definitely see that Bulger is getting irritated whenever he is called an informant.
