Defense wraps up closing argument in Hans Reiser trial

Filed under
Reiser

The defense attorney for a software programmer accused of killing his estranged wife told jurors Monday the prosecution hasn't proved the woman is dead, let alone murdered.

"You're being asked to convict this person of murder ... when you don't even know if there was a death," William Du Bois said as he made his final argument to jurors.

Du Bois said there's no evidence indicating Hans Reiser committed a crime, but if jurors disagree, then it was at most manslaughter, meaning it was committed in the heat of passion.

Reiser, known as the creator of the ReiserFS computer file system, testified that he had nothing to do with his wife's disappearance and she left his house alive.

An Everyday Linux User Review Of Zorin 12

This version of Zorin is a great step forward. It has a renewed sense of purpose and stands out in its own right as a decent Linux distribution. I think Zorin should follow Mint's lead and stick with aligning itself to the Ubuntu LTS release. This gives the developers more time to push it along at their own pace. All in all a decent alternative to Linux Mint and Ubuntu. Read more
