Mysterious Delay At The Reiser Murder Trial

Filed under
Reiser

Without an explanation, an Alameda County Superior Court judge ordered a 24-hour delay Monday in the long-waited trial of Han Reiser for the murder of his estranged wife, Nina, whose body has never been found and who the defense claims fled to her native Russia to escape a messy divorce.

Nina Reiser, 31, disappeared last year after dropping her two children off at her estranged husband's house in a quiet section of the Oakland hills.

Prosecutors say there's no great mystery about what happened; they believe they can prove she was killed by her husband, Hans Reiser, even though her body hasn't been recovered. But the defense has maintained there is no proof Nina Reiser is dead, let alone slain, and she may very well be secretly living in her native Russia.

Opening arguments were rescheduled for Tuesday.

Rest is Rehash here

And:

Hans Reiser's Murder Trial is off to a slow start. Today with a packed hallway opening statements were suddenly postponed with little explanation.

In the courtroom though was a huge picture of Nina Reiser with one of her children as a baby. Hans Reiser was there too with his attorneys. I did not see him glance at the photo. By the time we left nothing was said in public. We did hear briefly from Hans Reiser's mother who said she believes her son is innocent. But she stayed away from reporters in the hallway as everyone took her picture.

Not much more here either




Han's defence

The article says the following:
"But the defense has maintained there is no proof Nina Reiser is dead, let alone slain, and she may very well be secretly living in her native Russia."

I really doubt that but how hard or easy is it to leave the US via a fake passport or something? This is probably just a desperate claim by the defense.
