Mobster James 'Whitey' Bulger guilty of racketeering, involvement in murders

The jury in the trial of convicted mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger found him guilty Monday on 31 of 32 counts - including involvement in 11 murders.

Bulger stood while the verdict was read, portraying no emotion, as though he knew what the outcome was going to be. He will likely spend the rest of his life in solitary confinement.

But, as CNN's Deborah Feyerick reports, for families of eight of the 19 murder victims, there was heartbreak and disappointment with Monday's outcome.
