Eccentric real estate heir Robert Durst is on trial for the 2001 murder of his neighbor, 71-year-old Morris Black.

Prosecutors say Durst fatally shot and dismembered Black before dumping his remains in Galveston Bay. They believe the confrontation happened when Black discovered who Durst was. The defense claims Durst's actions were the result of an undiagnosed disorder. In this special release of TX v. Robert Durst, the jury is read instructions by the judge ahead of closing arguments before the jury begins deliberations. Watch the verdict to see whether Durst was convicted or acquitted of murder.
