Multimillionaire murder think Robert Durst was behind in justice Monday to ask for bail, with his lawyers approaching to disagree that prosecutors do not have adequate justification to reason him on a murder assign out of California or a drug and gun box in Louisiana.
In justice papers filed Friday, a real-estate heir’s authorised group argued he was destitute in New Orleans on Mar 14 to coincide with a culmination “The Jinx,” an HBO documentary array about his weird history.
The LAPD has denied being in cahoots with a filmmakers and says a assign that Durst killed his former confidant, Susan Berman, in Beverly Hills 15 years ago is a outcome of a long-running investigation. In justice papers, authorities advise Berman might have been killed since she knew something about a disappearance of Durst’s initial mother in 1982.
After he was arrested on a aver from California, New Orleans authorities pronounced they found a .38 size Smith Wesson revolver and 5 ounces of pot in his hotel room.
Legal experts contend those transgression charges could infer to be a bigger headache than a harder-to-prove murder swat for a 71-year-old — who served dual years in jail for dismembering an aged neighbor he claimed to have shot in self-defense.
“If Robert Durst is condemned to 20 years clearly, 15 years, even 10 years, in his earthy and mental condition and his age, it is radically a life sentence,” New Orleans rapist invulnerability counsel Chick Foret, who is not representing Durst, told NBC News.
