Sources: Westchester DA to pursue charges against Robert Durst in disappearance of his wife
Westchester District Attorney Mimi Rocah will convene a grand jury and pursue charges against Robert Durst in the 1982 disappearance of his wife, sources tell News 12.
News 12 was told that subpoenas are now going out and a jury could be empaneled by the end of next week.
Rocah’s team had no comment for News 12.
News 12 is also waiting to hear back from the attorney who represented Durst at his murder trial in California.
A Los Angeles jury convicted Durst in September for fatally shooting his friend Susan Berman in 2000.
Prosecutors say the Hudson Valley real estate heir killed Berman to keep her from speaking to Westchester police about the disappearance of his first wife, Kathie Durst.
Kathie Durst’s case is now being treated as a murder in Westchester County, even though her body was never recovered. This is news Kathie Durst's family waited nearly four decades to hear.
Whether or not Durst will actually stand trial for her death remains to be seen.
The 78-year-old is terminally ill and battling cancer behind bars in California, where he is awaiting sentencing in a few days on Berman's murder.
