NEW YORK (AP) - An arrest warrant has been issued for a real estate heir who admitted killing his neighbor in Texas a decade ago, because he failed to show up for a New York City court appearance.

Robert Durst’s lawyer Steven Rabinowitz tells the Daily News (https://nydn.us/1sV1VBe ) his 73-year-old client is in Texas and unable to travel for undisclosed medical reasons.

Rabinowitz said he expects the warrant to be dismissed when Durst can return.

Durst is facing a trespassing charge following a 2013 arrest at his brother’s midtown Manhattan home. He had been told to stay away.

The Durst Organization is a billion-dollar real estate company that owns several skyscrapers.

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