NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A New York real estate heir pleaded guilty in New Orleans on Wednesday to a weapons charge and agreed to an 85-month prison sentence, a move that could usher in his extradition to California to face murder charges.

U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt told Robert Durst that he will not make the plea final before he reviews biggin & scott knox a pre-sentencing report due in two weeks.

Durst, 72, appeared frail. He said mostly "Yes, your honor" and occasionally "I'm sorry; I couldn't hear that." Defense attorney Richard DeGuerin occasionally repeated questions into Durst's right ear; he told the judge that Durst's left ear is completely deaf.

Durst wore an orange jail jumpsuit, and his hands were shackled to his waist. When Durst was sworn in, the judge told him to raise his right hand, quickly amending that to "as best you can."

Durst admitted that he illegally carried a .38-caliber revolver after being convicted of a felony.
