Mother of Hans Reiser testifies during preliminary hearing today

Filed under
Reiser

In a tape recorded phone conversation, Beverly Palmer, the mother of murder defendant Hans Reiser, told her son Nina Reiser didn't "deserve whatever happened to her," according to testimony from Palmer Tuesday.

Palmer testified during a preliminary hearing in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland for Hans Reiser, 42, charged with murdering his estranged wife.

"Do you remember telling Hans in a phone conversation that Nina didn't deserve whatever happened to her," Alameda County Deputy District Attorney Greg Dolge asked Palmer.

"Yes," she said, adding Hans Reiser responded "the children shouldn't be endangered by her and that he and (their son) didn't deserve what happened to them."

Pressed by Dolge about what her son meant, Palmer said she believed Hans Reiser was referring to their children being in foster care and him being a suspect in a murder.
