Reiser's Mom Defending Son on Her Second Day of Testimony

Filed under
Reiser

Hans Reiser mother took the witness stand at her son's murder trial here for the second day Tuesday and did what moms usually do: Protect their offspring.
Reiser's mother, Beverly Palmer, wore the same grayish blue dress she had on Monday, and her dyed hair was styled in the same red fiery way. But the mother's voice, demeanor and recollection was much different while she responded to a mountain of questions from her son's attorney, William DuBois, who is defending Hans Reiser on allegations he killed his wife last year.

"Is Hans a violent person?"

"No."

"How long have you known Hans?"

"For 43 years," the mother replied, chuckling while reciting her only child's age.

"Is Hans the type of person who did violent things?

"No."

"Are you aware of any violent act Hans has ever done to any human being?"

"No," she said.
