Robert Durst

NEW YORK, NY — April 30, 2021 — Law&Crime, the major reside crime trial network, was chosen by Los Angeles Superior Court to provide video footage from inside the courtroom of the Robert Durst murder trial for all the national, local and international media covering the high profile trial. Live gavel-to-gavel trial policy will begin on May 17 about the Law&Crime Network.
The trial was suspended because of COVID-19 precautions, several weeks to what might be a 6-month trial. Jury selection lasted nearly a month, opening statements took four times and jurors heard an additional two weeks of witness testimony before the outbreak caused proceedings to a stop. Law&Crime will possess the sole camera in the courtroom for those proceedings.
Robert Durst, heir to a New York real estate empire, is accused of killing his friend Susan Berman within her Los Angeles home in 2000. Prosecutors argue that the murder was an effort to silence Berman soon after police questioned her about the unsolved 1982 disappearance of Durst’s wife. While Durst hasn’t been charged in this case, he had been part of a murder charge in the death of his neighbor Morris Black, whose dismembered body was found in Galveston Bay in 2001.
