News 12 has learned that the defense has rested in the Robert Durst murder trial in Los Angeles.
Durst is accused of murdering his best friend Susan Berman in 2000.
During cross examination, the Hudson Valley real estate heir confessed to lying in order to get out of trouble in the past - even under oath.
Prosecutors say he did it in an effort to keep Berman from telling investigators what she knew about Durst's wife Kathie's disappearance from their South Salem home.
He continues to deny the allegations against him.
