Hans Reiser wanted a speedy preliminary hearing on charges that he murdered his wife Nina Reiser, but owing to his attorney's busy schedule, will have to wait at least until March 9 for the conclusion of those proceedings.
Hans Reiser's hearing, which began back on Dec. 11, was scheduled to conclude on Friday, but the last day of the hearing was postponed today until March 9 because his attorney, William DuBois, is involved in an unrelated murder trial that's running longer than expected.
The purpose of the hearing is so a judge can determine if there's enough evidence to order him to stand trial on charges that he murdered Nina Reiser, 31, who was last seen alive on Sept. 3.
Prosecutor Greg Dolge said today that he had hoped the hearing would conclude back in December and hopes it will finally end on March 9.
There's been testimony on parts of six days as well as short hearings on various issues on two other days.
DuBois said Reiser "is anxious to get it over with."
