NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Millionaire real estate heir Robert Durst has pleaded not guilty to two weapons charges in a New Orleans court.
He entered his plea during an arraignment on weapons charges accusing him of possessing a firearm after a felony conviction and possessing both a firearm and an illegal drug, marijuana.
The weapons arrest has kept Durst in New Orleans even though he waived extradition to Los Angeles, where he’s charged in the December 2000 death of a longtime friend.
Durst is being held in prison without bail.
He was arrested in New Orleans on the eve of the finale of a six-part HBO documentary called “The Jinx” about Durst, the disappearance of his first wife in 1982, the death of a longtime friend in 2000 and the death and dismemberment of a neighbor in Galveston in 2001.
