The charge was made in a criminal complaint filed Tuesday by a New York State Police investigator in Lewisboro, New York. It comes a day after the Westchester District Attorney Mimi Rocah empaneled a grand jury to hear testimony in the murder of Kathie Durst to determine whether charges should be filed. Rocah did not announce the investigator’s Tuesday filing.
“The Westchester County District Attorney’s Office can confirm that a complaint charging Robert Durst with the murder of Kathleen Durst was filed in Lewisboro Town Court on October 19, 2021. We have no further comment at this time,” Rocah’s office said in a statement to the AP.
Durst had been sentenced to life in prison last week for killing a confidante who had helped him cover up his wife’s death, according to Los Angeles prosecutors. Durst has been on a ventilator for the last week after he contracted COVID-19, his lawyer told The Daily Beast Saturday.
