The longtime girlfriend of former Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger has renewed her request to be released on bail while she awaits trial for allegedly helping him elude authorities.
Catherine Greig's lawyer filed court papers Thursday asking a judge to consider releasing her. Kevin Reddington says he plans to file "voluminous documents" to support his request, including real estate appraisals.
Reddington has said Greig and her sister would put up their homes as collateral. Prosecutors say Greig helped Bulger escape capture for 16 years. Reddington says she was in love with Bulger and didn't know the extent of his alleged crimes when she fled with him.
Bulger is accused of participating in 19 murders, including the murder of Tulsa Businessman Roger Wheeler in 1981. The couple was apprehended in Santa Monica, Calif., in June.
