Reiser Fumbling: 'I Am Not Consistent In My Thinking'

Filed under
Reiser

The Hans Reiser murder trial resumed here Wednesday with the defendant fumbling on the witness stand. "Are you just making these things up?" Alameda County prosecutor Paul Hora asked at one point.

Hans Reiser underwent a second day of grueling cross examination by Hora who claims the Linux programmer killed his wife, Nina Reiser, amid a bitter divorce and custody battle over their two young children. The defendant had spent nearly five days on the stand under direct examination before it came to an abrupt halt at noon Tuesday.

"I am not consistent in my thinking," the defendant testified.

"That's the hallmark of lying, isn't it?" Hora replied.

"That's the hallmark of real people," the defendant responded.
