BOSTON (AP) - A former FBI agent who admitted taking payoffs from James "Whitey" Bulger appeared to choke back tears as he offered a dramatic apology to the family of one of the reputed gangster's alleged murder victims.

John Morris' voice cracked as he told a widow and her three sons during cross-examination at Bulger's racketeering trial Monday that he apologized for "things that I may have done and things that I didn't do." Morris testified earlier that he played "no direct role" in the killing of two men.

Patricia Donahue says Morris' apology comes "way, way too late."

The 83-year-old Bulger is charged with participating in 19 murders in the 1970s and '80s while he allegedly led the Winter Hill Gang.

Testimony in the case continues Tuesday.
