A nearly 21-year-old murder case has been put to rest in court following the announcement of Robert Durst’s conviction. A Los Angeles County jury convicted multimillionaire Durst of killing his friend Susan Berman in 2000. The verdict was given on Friday after three days of deliberation.
A third person was arrested in connection to the killings of an off duty police officer from New Orleans and his friend outside of a restaurant in Houston, Texas. According to authorities, 19-year-old Khalil Nelson was charged with two counts of capital murder and one count of aggravated robbery.
Although the road to recovery is still a work in progress, signs of life are starting to trickle back into New Orleans as the city cleans up in the wake of Hurricane Ida. It’s been almost two weeks since Ida made landfall along Southern Louisiana as a Category 4 storm, bringing forth powerful destruction.
Residents of New Orleans have joined efforts to overcome the consequences of Hurricane Ida. Over the past few days, thousands of city residents took part in the efforts of Neighbors Helping Neighbors to get through the tough times together.
After Hurricane Ida ravaged the state of Louisiana, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell (D) told residents they can return home. Cantrell told a news conference Friday that due to electricity returning, residents could return home as most can expect power by next Wednesday.
