(CNN)A real estate tycoon heard muttering on the HBO documentary “The Jinx” that he had “killed them all” must stand trial on charges that he murdered a friend in 2000, a Los Angeles judge ruled Thursday.

Robert Durst, 75, is accused of shooting Susan Berman in the head at her Beverly Hills home on December 23, 2000. She was scheduled to speak hours later with police about the 1982 disappearance of Durst’s wife. Berman’s body was found the next day.Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark Windham also ruled admissible statements Berman made about allegedly helping Durst build an alibi for the death of his wife, Kathleen McCormack Durst, prosecutors said in a news release.
