Prosecutor Tells Jurors 'Nina is Dead' and Hans Reiser 'Killed Her'

Filed under
Reiser

Hans Reiser's prosecutor urged jurors Tuesday to convict the Linux programmer of murdering his estranged wife, Nina Reiser, who was last seen at his Oakland hills house in 2006.

"Nina is dead and the defendant killed her," prosecutor Paul Hora told jurors at the outset of his closing arguments here.

Hora conceded to jurors that the case is based largely on circumstantial evidence. But he said the defendant should not be "rewarded" for successfully disposing of her body. He urged jurors to piece the case together, one circumstance at a time.

"Each of those individual circumstances have much more meaning," Hora said.

"She is dead. There's no doubt she's dead," Hora said. The main reason, Hora said over and again is because she would never have voluntarily left her two young children: "This woman would never abandon those kids."

Prosecutor: 'You've Got to Be Kidding Me'

After the morning break Tuesday, prosecutor Paul Hora picked up where he left off, telling jurors during closing arguments that Linux programmer Hans Reiser's "story is bologna, nonsense. It's a lie."

"You've got to be kidding me," Hora said as Reiser's murder trial was nearing conclusion. He called the defendant's defense to accusations he killed wife Nina Reiser "complete and utter nonsense."

At times, jurors laughed almost uncontrollably.

I will be referencing the green site due to other sites obviously focusing on Windows.

  • Fedora 24 upgrade
    Fedora 24 was released last week, so of course I had to upgrade my machines. As has become the norm, there weren’t any serious issues, but I hit a few annoyances this time around. The first was due to packages in the RPMFusion repos not being signed. This isn’t Fedora’s fault, as RPMFusion is a completely separate project. And it was temporary: by the time I upgraded my laptop on Sunday night, the packages had all been signed.
  • Fedora Flock 2016
    I’ve been working on a shirt design for this year’s Fedora Flock in Krakow, Poland and figured that I’d share what I’ve put together! I’m also including some of my earlier attempts at the design as well to show my thought process as well. Ps. for those who may not be familiar with landmarks and iconic images of Krakow (and yes, I too am one of you too… much research was needed!) here’s a list of some of the imagery that I tied to incorporate in the designs.
  • A F24 user story
    Honestly, nothing from the features in the announcement of the Fedora 24 release didn't manage to excite me intro upgrading my desktop from an old, out-of-support Fedora. It's main task is to edit digital photography and for some years a Linux solution is decent at it.

    We have upgraded our beloved evil super villain IRC bot on freenode from an old version of supybot-gribble to a new shiny version of limnoria ( https://github.com/ProgVal/Limnoria ).

If you notice problems please do let us know with a Fedora Infrastructure ticket.
