NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Jailed real estate heir Robert Durst's trial on a federal weapons charge has been postponed from June to September.

U.S. District Judge Helen Berrigan set the date for Sept. 21 on Monday. Durst is charged with possessing a firearm after a felony conviction.

Durst's attorneys asked for a delay Friday, saying the government is still working on its requests for pretrial information.

Durst is an estranged heir of the family that owns 1 World Trade Center. He has waived extradition to California, where he's charged with murder.

State and federal weapons charges have kept him in Louisiana.

A different federal judge delayed until April 27 a hearing on whether Durst's attorneys followed the rules when they got state court subpoenas for the state trooper and FBI agents who arrested Durst.
