Robert Durst now faces charges in New York in connection to the murder of his wife in 1982, officials confirmed.
“The Westchester County District Attorney’s Office can confirm that a complaint charging Robert Durst with the murder of Kathleen Durst was filed in Lewisboro Town Court on October 19, 2021. We have no further comment at this time,” the Westchester District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.
The charges are the latest in the ongoing legal involving the real-estate heir and alleged serial killer.
Durst was recently convicted of killing his friend Susan Berman in Los Angeles in 2000. He was sentenced to life in prison. Prosecutors alleged that murder happened because Durst was afraid Berman would reveal information about the 1982 disappearance of Durst’s first wife.
Robert Durst is also accused of killing a neighbor in Texas. Authorities say Durst fled to Texas to avoid prosecution in New York. He lived under a false name and when the neighbor found out who he was, she was killed.
In California, Durst was only on trial for killing Berman, but prosecutors during the trial argued he killed three people in different states over four decades. During the trial, Durst appeared as a frail man often listening to the proceedings from a wheelchair.
It was recently revealed that while in prison, Durst contracted COVID-19
Durst was also featured in the HBO documentary called “The Jinx” where he was caught on microphone talking about the killings.
