The phone call from Nina Reiser's cell phone was placed to her estranged husband, Hans Reiser -- the popular Linux programmer who is accused of killing her, according to testimony here Thursday.
That testimony provided no real value to jurors, other than demonstrating to the panel that the authorities did their homework and reviewed cell phone records of both the suspect and the missing woman.
The calls originated from a cell phone tower in Berkeley, near a grocery store whose surveillance cameras captured the woman and her two small children inside. The surveillance tapes have been played several times for jurors, and the $144 receipt has been shown to them many times as well.
