Reiser

A jury in the civil wrongful death trial of convicted wife killer Hans Reiser has awarded his children $60 million in damages for the loss of their mother.

Reiser, 48, is serving a term of 15 years to life in state prison for killing his wife, 31-year-old Nina Reiser, on Sept. 3, 2006.

His children, 12-year-old Rory and 11-year-old Niorline Reiser, sued him, seeking a total of $25 million for the loss of their mother.

Jurors today instead ordered Reiser to pay each child $25 million, plus $10 million in punitive damages.
