US real estate heir Robert Durst has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his best friend, Susan Berman. Ms Berman was found shot in the head in her Beverly Hills home. His sentence for first-degree murder excludes any possibility of parole, meaning he will now very likely die in prison. The crime carries special circumstances, the jury decided, including murder while lying in wait, and murder of a witness.
