Jailhouse Interview: Reiser Talks to ABC's 20/20

Filed under
Reiser

The murder trial against Hans Reiser starts on Monday. Even without a body, prosecutors say they have a solid case. Reiser, a prominent and successful East Bay computer programmer, is accused of killing his wife Nina a year ago. ABC's 20/20 got an exclusive interview with him.

It's been little more than a year since Hans Reiser was arrested and charged with the murder of his estranged wife. A jury was finally selected last week after going through a pool of 300 people.

In ABC's 20/20 interview, the well-known computer programmer speaks fondly of his obstetrician wife who he's now accused of murdering.

Reiser's attorney, Richard Tamor, tells ABC7 the prosecution's case is based on circumstantial evidence. ABC7 legal analyst, Dean Johnson, says it's going to be one of the most interesting trials in recent memory. He is also, what his attorney calls, a "unique personality."
