MIAMI — Florida prosecutors say they intend to try captured mobster James “Whitey” Bulger on charges that he ordered the murder of a gambling executive.

Prosecutors in Miami said today that the Boston Irish mob leader remains under indictment for the 1982 murder of jai alai executive John Callahan. Former FBI agent John Connolly was convicted of murder in 2008 for telling Bulger that Callahan was cooperating with investigators looking into Bulger’s role in the 1981 slaying of Oklahoma businessman Roger Wheeler.

Florida and Oklahoma have the death penalty.

The 81-year-old Bulger was arrested Wednesday near Los Angeles. Overall, he was wanted for his alleged role in 19 murders. He fled Boston in 1995 when he learned he was about to be indicted. Connolly may have been the source.
