LOS ANGELES - A witness fearing retribution in the murder trial of wealthy real estate scion Robert Durst, whose ties to several slayings were chronicled in HBO's documentary "The Jinx," will be allowed to testify without revealing his or her identity, a Los Angeles judge ruled on Friday.
Durst, 73, who attended the hearing in a wheelchair, pleaded not guilty in November to first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of writer and longtime confidante Susan Berman in December 2000. Prosecutors say Durst killed Berman because of what she knew about his wife's death in New York two decades earlier.
