The Real Estate Mogul Robert Durst Is Expected to Take the Stand in His Murder Trial

Robert Durst, the multimillionaire subject of the HBO crime documentary “The Jinx,” had been expected to testify in his defense Wednesday, his legal team had told CNN. But the court adjourned for the day after a lengthy cross-examination of memory expert, Elizabeth Loftus. Durst is now expected to testify Thursday.

Durst is charged with the first-degree murder of his close friend and confidante, Susan Berman, in 2000, at her Beverly Hills home, hours before she was set to talk to investigators about the mysterious disappearance of his first wife, Kathleen McCormack Durst, who was last seen in 1982.
Durst has long denied killing Berman, and his lawyer has said that he panicked and ran after finding her body. He has pleaded not guilty.
