The estranged husband of a missing mother was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of murder in connection with her disappearance more than a month ago, police said.
Hans Thomas Reiser was arrested one day after Oakland police, with the help of the FBI, searched his house a second time for clues in the disappearance of Nina Reiser.
Nina Reiser, 31, was last seen Sept. 3 while dropping off her 7-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter at her husband's home in the Oakland hills. She never showed up for a meeting with her best friend that evening. Her Honda minivan was found Sept. 9 with her purse and groceries still inside.
The Reisers have been embroiled in an acrimonious divorce and child custody fight after separating in May 2004. Nina Reiser filed for divorce three months later, but it has not been finalized.
Hans Reiser has refused to speak to authorities. His lawyer, William DuBois, did not immediately return a call Tuesday.
