Reiser

A police officer on Wednesday testified here in the Hans Reiser murder trial that the Linux programmer was under heavy surveillance following the 2006 disappearance of his wife, Nina Reiser.

Under intense cross examination, Oakland Police Department officer Eugene Guerrero said the Oakland authorities set up as many as nine watches of the defendant before he was arrested and charged with murdering his 31-year-old wife.

"How many times have you surveilled Mr. Reiser?" defense attorney William DuBois asked.

"Seven, eight, nine times," Guerrero responded.
