ROBERT DURST, the frail New York real estate heir who went on trial for murdering his best friend Susan Berman 20 years ago was found guilty by a jury on Friday – years after his murder admission in a Netflix documentary The Jinx.

Durst, 78, was convicted of the first-degree murder for shooting Berman at point-blank range in the back of the head inside her Los Angeles home in December 2000 as she was about to tell cops how she helped cover up his wife’s slaying.

Berman, who was the daughter of a Las Vegas mobster, was Durst’s longtime confidante had informed friends she spared him a ticket to prison by providing a phony alibi soon after his wife’s disappearance.

Durst was portrayed during the trial as an elite and a narcissist who thought he was above the law.

The scion had become a prime suspect after his profile during the 2015 Netflix documentary The Jinx where Durst was recorded using a bathroom:  “What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”
