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.
