Preliminary hearing for Hans Reiser begins today

Filed under
Reiser

The preliminary hearing for Hans Reiser on charges that he murdered his wife Nina Reiser began today with testimony from the woman Nina Reiser was supposed to meet on the day she disappeared.

Ellen Doren, who has described herself as Nina Reiser's best friend, said she saw Reiser several times a week and said Reiser had "a very close relationship" with her children, 7-year-old Rory Reiser and 5-year-old Nio Reiser.

Doren said she and Reiser are both originally from Russia and met three-and-a-half years ago because their children are about the same age and attend a Russian culture and language school in the Oakland area.

Nina Reiser, 31, who was trained as a physician in Russia, was last seen about 2 p.m. on Sept. 3 when she dropped off the couple's two children at Hans Reiser's home in the 6900 block of Exeter Drive in Oakland.

She was supposed to meet Doren, but she never showed up.
