Hans Reiser Murder Trial Refocusing on Nina Reiser

Filed under
Reiser

After weeks of forensic evidence and other testimony, the softer side of the Hans Reiser murder trial re-emerged here Wednesday when the 3-month-old case refocused on the Linux programmer's wife, who vanished Sept. 3, 2006.

After weeks of forensic evidence and other testimony, a manager for the San Francisco Public Health Department testified she offered Nina Reiser a job working with Russian immigrants two days before she went missing. She was supposed to begin her stint Sept. 21, 2006, but she never started.

"Did she ever show up on the 21st to start her new job?" prosecutor Paul Hora asked Patricia Ann Erwin, the Public Health Department manager.

"No."

Erwin also said Nina Reiser never showed to fill out paperwork or get her fingerprints taken.
