Hans Reiser leads police to wife's remains

Filed under
Reiser

ABC News has confirmed that authorities are in the process of recovering Nina Reiser's remains from Redwood Regional Park, east of Skyline Boulevard.

We spoke with the office of Reiser's attorney, William Dubois. They confirmed to us that Dubois and Reiser accompanied police into the park Monday afternoon. ABC News reports Reiser led them to his wife's remains.

The body was found in a bag, buried deep in a ravine. The bag was well concealed and could have been easily overlooked. The remains have not yet been exhumed. Present at the scene were Judge Goodman, members of the district attorney's office, Oakland police and Alameda sheriffs.

Reiser's son testified at the trial that he had a dream that he saw his father carry his mother out of the house in a bag.

Sources tell ABC News that a deal was struck with Reiser that would reduce his conviction from first-degree murder to second-degree murder. The lesser charge means Reiser could receive a sentence of 15 years to life, instead of the previous 25 years to life.

Reiser's sentencing has been postponed until forensic verification of the remains can be confirmed.
