Durst new york daily newsA New Orleans magistrate judge denied Robert Durst bail Monday, saying the accused killer is a flight risk and danger to others.

The deranged 71-year-old heir of the wealthy New York real estate family will be held on weapons charges as authorities arrange his extradition to Los Angeles.

On March 14 he was arrested in the Big Easy for the murder of his confidante, Susan Berman, in California in 2000.

He has been held in a prison’s mental health unit for nearly a week because he is a suicide risk, officials say.

During the bail hearing before Magistrate Harry Cantrell, Durst sat beside his lawyers with his hands shackled to his sides in padded handcuffs.

Durst’s attorney, Dick DeGuerin, said the hearing had gone as he expected.

“We will not contest bail until we get to California. That’s where we want to be,” he said.
