Reiser

Jurors weighing Linux programmer Hans Reiser's murder case were deliberating for the first full day here Wednesday. Panelists have just broken for lunch and are headed for a nearby Mexican restaurant.

The seven-man, five-woman jury received the case at 2:30 p.m. Pacific time Tuesday and left the Alameda County courthouse about two hours later.

We also have a reader poll on the outcome, and a majority of you so far have picked "not guilty."
