Bulger is charged with firing on a car Halloran was in, months after he turned informant. Halloran and Michael Donahue were killed.

WISCONSIN: Life in slaying of daughters
A man who killed his three daughters in an act of revenge against his ex-wife was sentenced Monday to life in prison with no chance of parole. Aaron Schaffhausen, 35, admitted he killed Amara, 11, Sophie, 8, and Cecilia, 5, at their River Falls home in July 2012 to hurt his ex-wife. A jury found in April that he was sane when he slit the girls' throats, tucked them into bed, then tried to set the house on fire to cover his crime.
