Covid downs just-sentenced killer

World | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 18 Oct 2021

American real estate mogul Robert Durst, imprisoned for killing his best friend, went on a ventilator after becoming infected with Covid-19.

Durst, 78, was sentenced to life behind bars last week with no possibility of parole after a jury found him guilty of killing his friend in 2000 at her Beverly Hills home to keep her from talking to police about the disappearance of his wife two decades ago.

His lawyer had said in court that Durst was in "very bad condition."

A multi-millionaire who was the subject of an explosive HBO documentary entitled The Jinx, Durst denied the charges against him.

But he muttered to himself "Killed them all, of course" while the microphone remained switched on during a break in the recording of the final episode of the film.
