[September 18, 2009]  DEDHAM, Mass. (AP) -- A Massachusetts judge has ordered fugitive mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger and a cohort to pay $15 million each to the family of 26-year-old woman after finding them liable for her 1981 murder.

InsuranceJudge Patrick Brady also ordered Stephen "The Rifleman" Flemmi, serving a life sentence for 10 murders, to pay $3 million for molesting the woman's younger sister, and another $500,000 for intentionally inflicting emotional distress on the woman's mother. The sister and mother have both died.

Bulger, who just turned 80, remains on the loose.

Flemmi dated Debra Davis, and authorities allege she was killed because she knew too much about the mob bosses.

A lawyer for Davis' family tells The Boston Globe it's unclear whether Bulger and Flemmi have any assets to pay the judgment.
