BOSTON (AP) -- The longtime girlfriend of reputed Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger (BUHL'-jur) has been indicted for allegedly helping him hide during his 16 years on the run.

Catherine Greig (GREHG) has been held since she and Bulger were captured in June in Santa Monica, Calif.

On Thursday, federal prosecutors formally charged Greig with conspiracy to harbor and conceal a fugitive.

Bulger is charged with participating in 19 murders while he was leader of the Winter Hill gang and also an FBI informant. He has pleaded not guilty.

Greig's attorney, Kevin Reddington, argued last month that she didn't know the extent of Bulger's crimes when she left with him. He says she should be released on bail with electronic monitoring. Greig has agreed to be held while Reddington gathers information to support the bail request.
