Robert durst hospitalized in los angeles, delaying his murder trial again. Defense attorneys argued adamantly that the trial should be adjourned again because Durst was in pain, and because he couldn't get into the street clothes he is allowed to wear to avoid prejudicing the jury. The lawyers said Durst had a urinary tract infection as a consequence of bladder cancer, and had undiagnosed health problems that they couldn't name because the jail hospital had denied them information and access to him.

Robert Durst -- the notorious subject of the HBO documentary, 'The Jinx' -- is back in court for his murder trial after a 14-month break due to the coronavirus pandemic. Durst just appeared in court, appearing thin and frail with his nose and mouth hidden behind a white medical mask. In case you've forgotten he stands accused of shooting his friend, Susan Berman, in the head at her Beverly Hills home in December 2000 allegedly because she knew something about the mysterious death of his wife, Kathleen, who disappeared in 1982.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge on Monday ordered that the murder trial of New York real estate heir Robert Durst will continue, despite defense requests for a delay because they say he's in such pain that he can't stand up to dress for trial.

Durst was hospitalized and the trial was put on pause Thursday. On Monday, with the Los Angeles County jail system doctors declaring Durst fit for court, Superior Court Judge Mark E. Windham ordered that testimony in the trial, which resumed last month after a 14-month pandemic delay, would continue.

The 78-year-old Durst, charged with killing his best friend Susan Berman, appeared in court looking frail in a wheelchair and jail garb, with a catheter attached that he held up to show the judge.

Terrorism in Canada: A timeline of plots, attacks, and allegations

  Terrorism in Canada: A timeline of plots, attacks, and allegations Four members of a Muslim family are dead and one child is in hospital after a hit-and-run in London, Ont. Sunday, in what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called an act of terrorism. Police said 20-year-old Nathaniel Veltman intentionally drove a truck into the family who was out for a walk on Sunday evening and he targeted them because of their faith. Veltman now faces four counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder. He did not know the victims.

Robert Alan Durst (born April 12, 1943) is an American real estate heir and suspected serial killer, the son of New York City businessman Seymour Durst and the elder brother of Douglas Durst , head of the Durst Organization.

Robert Durst , the multimillionaire real estate heir accused of murder , will be condemned by his own words, a prosecutor has said during a new round of opening statements at his murder trial . Speaking at the trial in Los Angeles, deputy district attorney John Lewin wove a Defense lawyers will present their own summary of the evidence on Wednesday. Last year, they stunned the audience when they said they would put Durst on the witness stand. Durst was acquitted of murder in a Texas court after testifying he killed Morris Black when the man pulled a gun on him and they wrestled for the weapon

Defense attorneys argued adamantly that the trial should be adjourned again because Durst was in pain, and because he couldn't get into the street clothes he is allowed to wear to avoid prejudicing the jury. The lawyers said Durst had a urinary tract infection as a consequence of bladder cancer, and had undiagnosed health problems that they couldn't name because the jail hospital had denied them information and access to him.

“I understand he’s in a good amount of pain because of the catheter,” Windham said.

Durst's lawyer Dick DeGuerin answered adamantly, “It's not just the catheter your honor, he’s in chest pain, he’s unable to breathe completely."

As testimony resumed, the judge had a blanket put over Durst to cover up his jail clothes and to “maintain his dignity to some degree,” adding that “one doesn’t ordinarily meet with the public with a catheter bag in full view.”

The defense recently submitted a motion asking the judge to push off the trial further, arguing that Durst is suffering from a slew of health issues, including cancer. The eccentric millionaire has been jailed since his 2015 arrest — which was spurred by admissions he made in the HBO documentary “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst .”

Durst is on trial for the 2000 killing of Berman at her Los Angeles home. Prosecutors have also been allowed to present evidence that Durst killed his wife, who disappeared in 1982, and that he deliberately killed a Texas man in 2000. Durst has denied killing Berman or having any involvement in his wife's disappearance. He was acquitted in the killing in Texas, which his lawyers argued was an accident.

Deputy District Attorney John Lewin argued Monday that Durst, who fled authorities after two of the deaths, had used countless ploys to avoid facing trial. The prosecutor argued that if anything Durst's appearance hurt the prosecution.

"This doesn’t look like someone who’s murdered three people," Lewin said.
