Real estate heir accused in murder returns to NY

A Scarsdale millionaire who was once found not guilty of killing his neighbor in Texas is returning to the area after buying a home in Manhattan.

Robert Durst, whose family owns more than $1 billion in Manhattan real estate, was acquitted in the death of Morris Black eight years ago. Durst subsequently spent time in prison for dismembering Black's body.

Durst is also the main suspect in the 1982 disappearance of his first wife, Kathy, from their South Salem cottage and has been investigated in the murder of his own best friend, Susan Berman, in Los Angeles 11 years ago. Jury deliberations begin in the Robert Durst murder trial
