HOUSTON - Robert Durst — the millionaire facing murder and gun charges — is seeking to drop a lawsuit against a private investigator.

Three years ago, Tim Wilson was deposed by the attorney for Durst's brother, Douglas Durst.

Wilson claimed Robert Durst admitted to him that he went to his brother's home in New York to kill him. But after sitting outside the home armed with two guns, he later changed his mind.

Durst is now trying to drop the lawsuit against Wilson, after a judge called it frivolous and threatened to sanction Durst's attorneys.
