BOSTON (AP) - The brother of a woman allegedly killed by James "Whitey" Bulger exploded in anger after Bulger's former partner identified him as a drug user and informant.
   
The outburst came during testimony Monday by Stephen "The Rifleman" Flemmi at Bulger's racketeering trial. Flemmi had been testifying about the 1981 killing of Debra Davis. She had been Flemmi's girlfriend, and Flemmi says Bulger strangled her after Flemmi told her that he and Bulger were FBI informants.
   
Flemmi testified that her brother Steve Davis had been an informant. When he told jurors that, Steve Davis jumped up and shouted across the courtroom, and Flemmi quickly tried to correct himself, saying he meant to identify another Davis brother. Flemmi also apologized.
   
Steve Davis shouted an obscenity and called Flemmi a liar.
