>> The real estate scion, Robert Durst, star of the HBO documentary, The Jinx, chronicling his ties to several slayings, back in court Wednesday and a prosecutor telling the judge witnesses expected to testify in the murder trial are worried about their safety. But Durst's lawyer rejected the argument that a wheelchair-bound and incarcerated man poses any threat to witnesses, calling the remarks quote, hyperbole.
Reuters reporter Alex Dobuzinsky was at the court.>> Robert Durst looked like he was in pretty good shape when he was wheeled into the court today in a wheelchair. He was a little more subdued than he was in the last court appearance. Of course, last court appearance, he had to enter a plea and he was very vocal about being innocent.
This time he didn't speak because he didn't really have to.>> The 73-year-old is charged with shooting writer and long-time confidante Susan Berman in 2000, a murder prosecutors say he committed for what she knew about the unsolved disappearance of his wife in New York nearly two decades earlier.
Reports say Berman was shot execution-style. On Wednesday, Durst's lawyer and a prosecutor sparred over whether crates of confiscated legal files and other papers could be admitted to the case. Prosecutors say Durst waved his attorney-client privilege over some of those documents when he allowed The Jinx producers to comb through them.
Durst was formally charged with the Berman murder a day after HBO aired the final episode of The Jinx. He was recorded on a hot mic muttering to himself off camera, what the hell did I do? I killed them all, of course.
