Robert Durst will stand trial for murder

American millionaire Robert Durst, the subject of the HBO documentary The Jinx, will stand trial for the murder of a close friend in 2000

Prosecutors say the 75-year-old killed Susan Berman so that the police could not question her about the disappearance of his wife, Kathleen.

Mr. Durst pleaded not guilty to murder.

The heir to the real estate became the object of the six-part series of 2015, which allegedly confessed to the crime.

At the end of the film, Mr. Durst said to himself: "What the hell am I doing? I killed them all, of course."

A few hours before the last episode, the authorities arrested him in New Orleans for the murder of Miss Berman. Mr. Durst often interrupted court hearings, heading for the nearest door in a wheelchair and telling the court a "good weekend". His lawyers argued that there were not enough grounds for the trial, as there are no fingerprints or DNA data to link Mr. Durst with the death of Miss Berman.

But Judge Mark Wyndham said that the mogul's recorded comments on the show "act as a short confession" to several murders, unless he can give an explanation.

Mr. Durst was acquitted of killing his elderly neighbor, Morris Black, in 2001, claiming that he killed him on self-defense before cutting his body.

Undisclosed Death

- Kathleen McCormack: Robert Durst's first wife went missing in 1982 and is considered dead
- Susan Berman: This close friend of the Durst family was shot in the head in her home in Los Angeles in 2000
- Morris Black: Mr. Durst killed his elderly neighbor in 2001 while fighting for weapons, which he called self-defense. Mr. Durst’s lawyers claimed that he then panicked and got rid of the body by cutting it, and he was acquitted

Deciding that Mr. Durst should be brought to justice, the judge said that he also reviewed Mr. Durst’s comments on the accuracy of his image in the film “All Good Things”.

The fictional film of 2010, starring Ryan Gosling as a character based on Robert Durst and directed by Jinx director Andrew Yaretski, depicts the life of a magnate and shows him as a murderer.

Responding to a question about this in the comments to the DVD, Mr. Durst said: "I felt that the film was very, very, very close in many ways about what had largely happened."
