Robert Durst may soon face charges in the 1982 disappearance of his wife Kathie Durst, as the Westchester District Attorney plans to convene a grand jury in the case, according to a report.

Two sources close to the investigation told News12 that DA Mimi Rocah has decided to charge the convicted murderer nearly three decades after Kathie was last seen alive.

Kathie disappeared without a trace in New York in 1982 and her family has long maintained that she was murdered by her husband – the wealthy heir to one of the most powerful real estate companies in the Big Apple.

She and Durst were said to be having marital problems at the time, and his version of events from the last time he spoke to her changed repeatedly during the investigation.

Her body has never been found and no one has ever been charged.

The decision to move forward with a possible prosecution in the case now comes just weeks after Durst was convicted of murdering his best friend Susan Berman in a gangland execution-style murder at her Los Angeles home in 2000.

Durst was charged with murdering Berman after New York authorities reopened the investigation into Kathie’s disappearance and wanted to speak to her as a confidant of his.

Prosecutors said Berman knew too much about what happened to Kathie and was killed to silence her.

At the trial, prosecutors also said Durst had killed Kathie, despite never being charged.

Durst was also charged — and acquitted — of the 2001 murder of Morris Black in Galveston, Texas, despite admitting to hacking his body into multiple pieces with an ax and a bow saw.

Durst had claimed that he accidentally shot Black in the head as they both struggled over Durst’s firearm that Black had gotten hold of.

Kathie was declared legally dead in 2017.
