Killer Reiser In Jailhouse Interview: Sorry I Lied

Filed under
Reiser
Interviews

The Oakland computer software programmer who agreed to lead authorities to the body of his slain wife in exchange for a reduced sentence is now speaking publicly for the first time since his murder trial.

In an exclusive interview with CBS News at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, 44-year-old Hans Reiser said he was sorry he lied on the witness stand during his trial when he maintained he had nothing to do with 31-year old Nina Reiser's death. He and his defense team had also suggested at the time that Nina was alive and well and fled to her native Russia.

Reiser said in the interview that he did everything to protect his two children, Rory and Nio, now living in Russia with their grandmother.

"I did what I could to keep them safe." Reiser said, contending as he had during his trial that his estranged wife had abused the pair. "Everything I did was for my children."

Reiser was originally due in court Wednesday, but his sentencing was postponed given this week's developments.
