NEW YORK (AP) — Millionaire real estate scion Robert Durst has been charged in suburban New York City with the death of his wife, Kathie Durst, who vanished in 1982. A state police investigator filed a criminal complaint Tuesday at a town court in Lewisboro, New York, that accuses Durst of second-degree murder. The 78-year-old Durst was sentenced last week to life in prison without parole for murdering a confidante who prosecutors say helped him cover up Kathie Durst’s killing. Durst sat in a wheelchair during much of the sentencing hearing. A lawyer said that in the days afterward he was on a ventilator with COVID-19.
