Hans Reiser to Stand Trial for Murder

Filed under
Reiser

Alameda County Superior Court Judge Julie Conger said Friday afternoon that there is sufficient evidence to order Oakland software developer Hans Reiser to stand trial on charges that he murdered his wife, Nina Reiser, last year.

Conger said there's a "strong suspicion (Hans Reiser), if not personally, had some part in the murder of Nina Reiser."

Conger said she's especially troubled by Reiser's suspicious activity, especially the missing front seat in his car, the books on murder investigations he bought and his actions.

The prosecutor said he believes Reiser lured Nina Reiser to the house under the guise it was his weekend to visit the kids then killed her at or near the house.

NBC11's Jodi Hernandez is in court with an NBC11 news photographer. She will update what happens throughout the day.

Trade agreement could prohibit open source code supply

An international trade agreement under negotiation with Australia, the United States, the European Union and others may have wide-ranging implications for the technology users, according to civil liberties groups. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has analysed leaked drafts of texts for the Trade In Services Agreement (TISA) written in February this year, and claims it would prohibit countries involved from forcing vendors to disclose source code used for applications in their equipment.
