LOS ANGELES — Former Winter Hill Gang boss James J “Whitey” Bulger was remanded back to Massachusetts to face a litany of charges against him.

Appearing in federal court in Los Angeles on Thursday, Bulger had a full white beard, wire-rimmed glasses, and was visibly banding. He waved his right to a rendition hearing.

Bulger, accused of 19 murders, smiled as federal law enforcement agents led him away. He was also seen smiling next to longtime girlfriend Catherine Greig in an arrest photo.
