NEW YORK (AP) — The siblings of the missing wife of millionaire real estate heir Robert Durst are divided over whether to file a wrongful death lawsuit against him.

Kathleen Durst vanished in 1982. The New York Daily News ( ) reports attorneys for her sisters say they have concerns about a document their brother submitted to a Manhattan court. James McCormack wants the court to appoint him administrator so he could file the lawsuit.

McCormack tells the newspaper his sisters don't want to drag Kathleen's presumed death into court. But McCormack says it's a necessity and believes Durst killed her, even though he's never been charged.

The 72-year-old Durst was charged earlier this year with the death of his friend Susan Berman after he mumbled that he "killed them all" an HBO documentary.
