Robert Durst will finally stand trial for allegedly murdering his wife, Kathie Durst, in 1982 — that is, if he survives COVID-19 and his already incredibly frail condition.
A grand jury in NY state heard testimony last week, and the murder charge was filed Tuesday in Westchester County. The D.A.’s Office is confirming the charges were filed, but won’t comment any further.
It’s unclear when he would stand trial, but the former real estate tycoon — featured in the HBO documentary, “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst” — is already at death’s door. As you know, an L.A. jury convicted Durst last week for the murder of Susan Berman, and sentenced him to life in prison.
Two days later, 78-year-old Durst was placed on a ventilator after contracting the coronavirus.
Remember, Durst seemingly confessed on an open mic while recording an interview for ‘The Jinx’ … saying, “What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”
It seems like a longshot he’ll make it to trial in New York state, but the murder charge could at least be a moral victory for Kathie Durst’s family. She vanished in 1982, and her body was never found.
