The last pre-trial hearing for Whitey Bulger's trial commences today at 2 p.m., said Boston Globe deputy metro editor Mike Bello this morning. Today's is the last hearing before jury selection tomorrow, from a pool of 675 people.

Bulger is charged with racketeering and alleged participation in 19 murders. The trial, which begins June 10, is expected to last three months and will be one of the most dramatic trials the city has seen in many years. According to Bello, 80 witnesses will be called to testify for the prosecution, and 78 more for the defense. Many of these are former members of Bulger's notorious Winter Hill Gang who are now serving life sentences.

Bulger, 83, says he wants to be present for the whole trial. He wants to tell his side of the story, says Bello, "it's his show."

Listen to Bello's assessment of the upcoming trial on RadioBDC.
