HOUSTON (AP) -- A New York City real estate heir who admitted killing his neighbor a decade ago in Texas is facing a new charge in Houston that accuses him of urinating on candy at a drug store.

Authorities say 71-year-old Robert Durst was arrested Sunday and charged with criminal mischief -- specifically, urinating on at least $100 worth of candy at a CVS store. Witnesses said there was no provocation, and that Durst calmly left the store after the act.

His attorney, Chip Lewis, said in a statement Tuesday that they will address the allegations in court.

In 2001, Durst was arrested as a fugitive and admitted killing his neighbor and dumping the remains in Galveston Bay. He claimed self-defense and was acquitted of homicide charges.

Durst's family runs The Durst Organization, a privately held billion-dollar real estate company that owns several New York skyscrapers.
