Judge denies motion to dismiss charges against Reiser

Filed under
Reiser

A judge today denied a defense motion to dismiss charges that Oakland computer science engineer Hans Reiser murdered his wife, rejecting a defense attorney's argument that Reiser didn't have the opportunity to commit the crime.

William DuBois, Hans Reiser's lawyer, said testimony by the couple's 7-year-old son, Rory, that Nina had promptly left Hans' home at 6979 Exeter Drive in Oakland after dropping off Rory and his 5-year-old sister Nio early in the afternoon of Sept. 3 "precludes Hans Reiser from committing the offense charged."

DuBois said Rory's testimony on Dec. 11, which was the first day of the preliminary hearing, refutes the prosecution's theory that blood evidence at Hans Reiser's home proves that he killed his wife on Sept. 3. DuBois also noted that Judge Conger "was not persuaded that he (Hans Reiser) killer her (Nina Reiser) in front of the children, which is what the prosecution wants the court to believe."

He said the prosecution's theory "is not supported by any evidence in the case."

LinuxAndUbuntu Distro Review Of The Week - Deepin OS

​Depth/Deepin OS is not just another Linux Distro, but one with something new to show. Deepin OS is simply speaking, just beautiful. Deepin OS, formerly known as Deepin, Linux Deepin, and Hiweed GNU/Linux is a Linux distro with an identity crisis. Seriously, this distro has undergone name changes you always have to check twice if the name is still the same. And that is all the negative you are going to say about this distro. Honestly speaking, Deepin OS is surely going to blow you away. I have been keeping an eye on this distro since 2013 and it still manages to impress me. Read more

KDE Leftovers: digikam, KDevelop, Kate, GSoC, and Akademy

  • [digikam] Call to Test the Pre-Release of 5.6.0
    Once again a lot has been going on behind the scenes since the last release. The HTML gallery tool is back, database shrinking (e.g. purging stale thumbnails) is also supported on MySQL, grouping has been improved and additional sidecars can now be specified. Therefore the release of 5.6.0 will be (is already) delayed, as we would like to invite you to test all these features. As usual they are available in the pre-release bundles or obviously directly from the git repository. Please report any dysfunctions, unexpected behaviour or suggestions for improvement to our bug tracker.
  • KDevelop runtimes: Docker and Flatpak integration
    On my last blog post I discussed about how some assumptions such as the platform developed on can affect our development. We need to minimize it by empowering the developers with good tools so that they can develop properly. To that end, I introduced runtimes in our IDE to abstract platforms (much like on Gnome’s Builder or Qt Creator).

  • My Akademy Plans
    The Akademy programme (saturday, sunday) is actually pretty long; the conference days stretch into feels-like-evening to me. Of course, the Dutch are infamous for being “6pm at the dinner table, and eat potatoes” so my notion of evening may not match what works on the Mediterranean coast. Actually, I know it doesn’t since way back when at a Ubuntu Developer Summit in Sevilla it took some internal-clock-resetting to adjust to dinner closer to midnight than 18:00.
