Jinx fans: Robert Durst has been sentenced to time behind bars

Laura Holland

Fans of The Jinx will be all too familiar with the life and story of Robert Durst. 

He was the centre of the six-part documentary investigating the death of his wife, Kathleen, his friend Susan Berman, and his neighbour Morris Black.

While Robert admitted to the death of his neighbour but claimed it was self-defense, he still pleads his innocence for the first two murders.

But now, he has just been sentenced to seven years and one month in prison on weapon violations.

According to The New York Post, a federal judge in New Orleans signed off on his plea bargain which will see his serve time behind bars.

Durst, who is now 72 years of age, is still facing murder charges in California for the 2008 murder of his friend Susan and in August he will be transferred to California to face trial.
