Millionaire real estate heir Robert Durst is due in a Los Angeles court Monday, accused of killing his friend Susan Berman. Durst, 75, faces one count of first-degree murder in the December 2000 killing. He is scheduled to appear at a preliminary hearing in the Los Angeles Airport Courthouse.

Berman was shot in the head in her Beverly Hills, California, home shortly before investigators were set to speak with her about the 1982 disappearance of Durst’s first wife, Kathleen McCormack Durst.

Robert Durst has long maintained he had nothing to do with Berman’s death or his wife’s disappearance.

 

Durst has said the last time he saw his first wife was when he dropped her off at a train station in Westchester, New York, so she could head back to medical school in the city.

McCormack’s body has never been found and no one has been charged in connection to her disappearance.

 

In 2015, Durst was the subject of the HBO documentary “The Jinx.”

 

In the final episode of “The Jinx,” Durst made headlines after he was overheard muttering to himself on a microphone he apparently did not realize he was on.

 

Durst is heard saying: “What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”
