Prosecutor Fixated on Disproving Hans Reiser's Defense

Filed under
Reiser

The Hans Reiser murder trial slogged through its second day of Week 5 on Tuesday as the prosecution put on two witnesses in an ongoing bid to convince jurors that the Linux programmer's wife, Nina Reiser, was killed and did not vanish as the husband claims.

Prosecutor Paul Hora maintains the maker of open-source filing systems killed his wife last year to end a bitter divorce and custody battle over their two young children, now 6 and 8. The woman was last seen Sept. 3, 2006, the day she brought the two children to her husband's Oakland hills house.

Hans Reiser, the developer of the ReiserFS filing system, has pleaded not guilty and remains jailed without bail. The defense: His 31-year-old wife moved back to Russia where she was born, to where the couple met.

The prosecution has spent the entire trial in an attempt to disprove that theory. It may not be for a week or more until Hora moves into the forensic evidence stage.

Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
