It is further alleged that defendant Robert Durst personally and intentionally discharged a firearm, a handgun, which caused great bodily injury and death to Susan Berman.» New York real estate heir Robert Durst pleaded not guilty to the 2000 murder of his close friend Susan Berman at his arraignment trial at the Airport Courthouse in Los Angeles on Friday. Footage shows Durst as Judge Mark E. Windham reads out the charges laid against him, as well as when Durst stands to plea «I am not guilty your honour, I do not know who killed Susan Berman and I did not do it. I deny the allegations, I am not guilty.» Durst is suspected to be linked to three murders, of his wife Kathleen McCormack Durst, who disappeared in New York 1982, of Susan Berman in California in 2000, and of Morris Black in Texas in 2001. He was acquitted of the murder of Black in 2003, but found guilty of dismembering him. The case is notable due to the 2015 six-part documentary 'The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst' in which the real estate developer was recorded on a hot mic saying, «What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.» He was arrested on the same day the recording was aired. Durst's trial is scheduled to start on January 14, and he will be held without bail until then. If convicted as charged, he faces a possible maximum sentence of life in state prison without the possibility of parole.
