(Newser) – The longtime girlfriend of the late Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger now lives with his relatives in an affluent Massachusetts suburb, per the AP. The Boston Globe reports that 68-year-old Catherine Greig lives in a home in Hingham owned by a daughter and son-in-law of Bulger's brother, William Bulger, the former president of the Massachusetts Senate. Greig is serving the last year of an eight-year sentence in home confinement for helping Whitey Bulger evade capture for 16 years. The sentence ends in July.

The 89-year-old Bulger was killed in prison last October. Greig declined to comment Thursday when approached by a Globe reporter. Her sister, Margaret McCusker, says Greig loved Bulger and misses him. Greig's attorney, Kevin Reddington, says his client has paid her debt to society and should be allowed to "live her life with happiness." (Bulger's family has filed a wrongful death claim over his murder in prison.)
