Hearing reset in Houston for NY real estate heir

HOUSTON (AP) - A court appearance for a 71-year-old New York City real estate heir charged with criminal mischief for urinating on candy at a Houston drug store has been reset for next month.

Attorneys for Robert Durst said a Friday hearing for him before a Harris County judge has been rescheduled for Sept. 16.

Durst a decade ago was acquitted of homicide charges, claiming self-defense after he admitted killing his neighbor in Galveston, dismembering the body and dumping the remains in Galveston Bay.

The most recent misdemeanor charge alleges Durst urinated on a cash register and candy last month at a store near his Houston residence. He remains free on $5,000 bond.

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