Hans Reiser Guilty of First Degree Murder

Hans was deeply involved in Linux kernel development with his widespread ReiserFS journaling file system and its successor Reiser4. Reiser’s estranged wife, Nina Reiser, disappeared on September 3, 2006; Reiser was convicted of her murder on April 28, 2008:

Jurors found Linux programmer Hans Reiser guilty of first degree murder on Monday, concluding he killed his estranged wife in 2006. The verdict followed a nearly six-month trial and nearly three days of deliberation

The 44-year-old developer of the ReiserFS filesystem, sat quietly as a clerk for Alameda County Superior Court Judge Larry Goodman read the verdict. Reiser faces a mandatory sentence of 25 years to life in prison. Wearing the same dark coat he’s worn for months, the defendant was immediately removed from the courtroom by one of four bailiffs watching over the courtroom. He asked out loud if he could speak with his attorney.

In a murder case with no body, no crime scene, no reliable eyewitness and virtually no physical evidence, the prosecution began the trial last November with a daunting task ahead.
