LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on statements real estate heir Robert Durst made to a prosecutor a year ago after his arrest in the Los Angeles killing of his best friend (all times local):

6:30 p.m.

A New York real estate heir charged with murdering a friend in Los Angeles told a prosecutor he never fled because of inertia.

Documents released Friday show Robert Durst told a prosecutor he was the world's worst fugitive.

Durst did not confess to the killing of Susan Berman in 2000 or admit involvement in the disappearance of his wife in New York in 1982.

But he said he was willing to provide information Deputy District Attorney John Lewin sought in exchange for a better prison assignment.

Defense attorneys would not comment. The motion filed by prosecutors says the defense claims the interview was improper and statements were not voluntary.

Durst was arrested the day the final chapter of a documentary about him aired with him muttering he "killed them all."

4:20 p.m.

A New York real estate heir charged with murder in Los Angeles told a prosecutor he cooperated with filmmakers for a documentary because he wanted them to see him as "an acceptable human being."

Court documents released Friday show Robert Durst said he let filmmakers view boxes of documents so they would get the full picture of his life.

Durst was arrested on the murder charge the day the final installment of "The Jinx" aired on HBO. In it, he is heard muttering that he "killed them all."

The series traced the mysterious disappearance of his wife in New York in 1982, his acquittal on murder charges in the 2001 dismemberment killing of a neighbor Texas, and the killing of his friend, Susan Berman, in Los Angeles in 2000.
