By Jonathan Kaminsky NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Robert Durst, the real estate scion awaiting extradition to California to face a murder charge, was indicted on weapons charges in New Orleans on Wednesday, the Orleans Parish District Attorney's Office said. Durst, recently featured in the HBO documentary "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst," has been charged with the 2000 murder of a longtime friend in Los Angeles County and has sought a swift extradition to face that charge. He was indicted by a grand jury on two Louisiana gun charges for illegally possessing a firearm as a felon and for carrying a weapon with a controlled substance, said Assistant District Attorney Christopher Bowman, a spokesman for Orleans Parish District, declining further comment. Durst, 71, was arrested at a New Orleans hotel, where he was staying under an alias.
