Killer real estate scion Robert Durst will be in a Los Angeles courtroom Monday to find out whether he’ll stand trial for the murder of his longtime friend 18 years ago.
Durst, 75, is accused of gunning down Susan Berman execution-style, fearing she was about to reveal his involvement in his first wife Kathleen’s mysterious disappearance in 1982.
The wacky septuagenarian allegedly admitted to Berman, 55, that he murdered Kathleen, witnesses have testified during pre-trial hearings.
Berman was found with a bullet hole in the back of her head inside her Beverly Hills home on Christmas Eve 2000 — just before she was set to speak to investigators about Durst’s alleged involvement in Kathleen’s death.
Durst has denied murdering either woman but has long been suspected of killing Kathleen, whose body was never found.
He was arrested for Berman’s murder in March 2015 — a day after the airing of the finale of HBO’s “The Jinx,” in which Durst is caught muttering to himself on a hot mic, “What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”
In 2001, the millionaire — who at the time was living as a cross-dressing woman named Dorothy Ciner in Galveston, Texas — was charged with murdering his elderly neighbor Morris Black.
He had admitted to killing Black and chopping up his body, but a jury acquitted him of homicide charges after he argued the shooting was in self-defense.
