US millionaire, Robert Durst, 78, sentenced to life imprisonment for best friend's murder



US real estate heir Robert Durst has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing his best friend.



Durst, now 78, was the subject of the HBO crime documentary series, The Jinx, in which he apparently confessed to three murders.



He was convicted in a Los Angeles court last month of shooting Susan Berman, 55, in the back of the head at her home in December 2000 to stop her from talking to police about his wife's disappearance.



Susan was found shot in the head in her Beverly Hills home.







In a victim impact statement in court, Berman's son told Durst "you murdered the person I was" when he killed her.



Prosecutors called Durst, 78, a "narcissistic psychopath".



The trial, which began in March last year but was adjourned for 14 months due to the coronavirus pandemic, came six years after Durst's apparent confession to multiple killings in the HBO TV series The Jinx.Latest Post
