On Tuesday, Israelis go to the polls to elect their next government. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in a battle for his political life. Polls show a coalition led by Isaac Herzog has a small lead over Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud Party. Netanyahu’s controversial March 3 speech to the U.S. Congress, where he assailed President Obama’s efforts to cut a deal curbing Iran’s nuclear program, failed to give him much of a boost at home.

Wealthy eccentric Robert Durst agreed Monday to face a murder charge in Los Angeles in the shooting 15 years ago of a mobster’s daughter who vouched for him after his wife disappeared. He could face the death penalty if convicted of murdering Susan Berman back in 2000. But one of his lawyers said the trip to LA may be delayed by new charges in Louisiana: The heir to a New York real estate fortune was carrying a revolver when FBI agents arrested him without incident at a New Orleans hotel over the weekend, according to a police report. It wasn’t immediately clear whether Durst had the required concealed weapon permit.

The defense at the Boston Marathon bombing trial is hanging back, allowing the prosecution to sail thru 51 witnesses and seeming near the end of their case. When the trial resumes Monday, they’ll move to the final hours before Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found in a drydocked boat. Then it will be the defense’s turn, and question beginning to loom as that moment approaches, is whether they will put Tsarnaev on the stand. Aaron heads back to Boston this morning to cover the trial.
