Robert Durst was indicted in New Orleans on charges of possession of a firearm by a felon and simultaneous possession of a firearm and a controlled dangerous substance.

The suspected murderer is being kept in New Orleans while these proceedings are carried out despite charges in Los Angeles for the murder of his friend and confidante Susan Berman. His extradition to California will wait until the charges in New Orleans are settled, the New York Post reported.

He had previously been arrested on March 15 for Berman’s murder, and separately arrested the next day in relation to the weapons charges, but had not been formally indicted until today.

The Real Deal reported on Durst’s potential strategy if he is tried in Los Angeles for Berman’s murder. His supposed admission to multiple murders at the conclusion of the HBO series “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst” has fueled much debate about whether the evidence will hold water in court.
