Hans Reiser might testify where his wife is, lawyer says

Filed under
Reiser

Computer programmer Hans Reiser plans to take the stand in his own defense to deny he murdered his estranged wife, his attorney said Monday.

Reiser, 43, may also be able to say where his wife is, defense attorney William Du Bois said, even though police believe she is dead. Reiser's wife, Nina Reiser, disappeared in September 2006 after dropping off the couple's two children at his home in the Oakland hills.

The defense attorney reiterated that Nina Reiser might be alive.

"I don't know where Nina is," Du Bois said outside court in Oakland. "I know where she could be," and that includes her native Russia, where the couple's two children are living with their maternal grandmother, he said.

"She could be in what was formerly known as the Soviet Union or any number of countries in that area of the world," Du Bois said.
