BOSTON — Federal prosecutors plan to seek a new indictment against the longtime girlfriend of former Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger.

That information was disclosed in a written status report prosecutors filed Wednesday in federal court, reviewed by The Associated Press.

Catherine Greig (Grehg) already has been indicted for allegedly helping Bulger elude authorities after he fled Boston in late 1994, just before he was indicted on racketeering charges. The couple was apprehended in Santa Monica in June after spending more than 16 years on the run.

Greig’s lawyers and prosecutors are expected to present a status report to a judge in court Thursday.

The filing by prosecutors says the government "anticipates seeking a superseding indictment in the future." No other details were provided.

Greig is charged with conspiracy to harbor and conceal a fugitive. She has pleaded not guilty.
