Fugitive heir to enter plea on gun charge in February
NEW ORLEANS - A fugitive New York real estate heir held in Louisiana on a weapons charge will enter a plea next month that will let him return to Los Angeles to face a murder charge.
Court filings show U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt set Feb. 3 as the date for Robert Durst's re-arraignment on a charge of illegally carrying a .38-caliber revolver after being convicted of a felony.
The charge has kept Durst in Louisiana even though he waived extradition to Los Angeles to face a charge that he killed a friend and onetime spokeswoman in 2000.
Previous filings show Durst has made a plea agreement with federal prosecutors in Louisiana.
In December, Durst's attorneys and Los Angeles County prosecutors filed an agreement stating that Durst will be extradited by Aug. 18.
