Jurors Shown 'Stuff Sack' Stained With Nina Reiser's Blood

Filed under
Reiser

Jurors in the Hans Reiser murder trial for the first time in the three-month trial were shown actual forensic evidence -- a sleeping bag cover that was stained with blood from the missing wife whom the Linux programmer is accused of killing.

"It was really hard to see without high-intensity lighting," Shannon Cavness, an Oakland Police Department criminologist, testified Tuesday.

The sleeping bag cover, which Cavness described as a "stuff sack," was discovered in the 44-year-old defendant's tiny Honda CRX. The blood stain was about six inches wide and a picture of it was shown to jurors on a monitor. The actual sleeping bag cover was brought into the courtroom and shown to jurors.

The bag is one of two pieces of forensic evidence that prosecutor Paul Hora claims shows the developer of open-source file systems killed his wife, the rest of the evidence is circumstantial.

Nope, we don't think so. The ability to personalize an Android Wear smartwatch is cool indeed, and the collection of third-party watch faces available at the Play Store is growing steadily.
