      Real estate heir charged for urinating on candy

      HOUSTON -- A New York City real estate heir who admitted killing his neighbor in Texas a decade ago is facing a new charge in Houston -- that he urinated on candy at a drug store.

      Authorities say Robert Durst was arrested Sunday after arguing with store employees. They say the 71-year-old man was charged with criminal mischief after urinating on at least $100 worth of confectionary.

      His attorney, Chip Lewis, said in a statement Tuesday that they will address the allegations in court.

      In 2001, Durst was arrested as a fugitive and admitted killing his neighbor and dumping the remains in Galveston Bay. He claimed self-defense and was acquitted of homicide charges.

      Durst's family runs The Durst Organization, a privately held billion-dollar real estate company that owns several New York skyscrapers.
