MIAMI (AP) - Closing arguments are set in the murder trial of a former Boston FBI agent accused of setting up a 1982 mob hit on a gambling executive.
After seven long weeks, prosecutors and defense attorneys for former agent John Connolly
are giving their closing statements Monday.
Tuesday, Jurors are expected to begin deliberations.
68-year-old Connolly faces life in prison if convicted in the killing of former Miami Jai-Alai president John Callahan.
According to prosecutors, he was fatally shot after Connolly tipped Boston mobsters that Callahan might implicate them in another murder.
Connolly is currently serving a 10-year federal prison sentence for a racketeering conviction stemming from his association with Boston's Winter Hill Gang.
