Robert Durst Found Guilty Of Murdering His Best Friend Susan Berman

Robert Durst has been found guilty of killing his best friend, Susan Berman, by an LA court.

People reports that the 78-year-old real estate heir was convicted of first-degree murder of Ms. Berman, who was shot at point-blank range in the back of the head in her Los Angeles home in December 2000.

She was preparing to tell police how she helped cover up his wife’s 1982 killing.

Ms. Berman had told friends she provided a phony alibi for him after his wife vanished, before she herself was killed.

Her body had been found in the bedroom of her Beverly Hills home the day before Christmas, after a neighbor reported her dogs were loose. She had been fatally shot in the back of the head.

During opening statements, Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney John Lewin said that Ms. Berman knew her killer and let him inside.

“She was murdered by someone she truly trusted,” he stated to the jury.

Robert was first sentenced to seven years in jail in a charge unrelated to the murder.
