Reiser, who’s been in jail since
October of 2006, is now looking at a mandatory sentence of 25 years to life in
Nina’s body has never been found
and the circumstantial case against the Reiser FS filesystem creator was based largely
on his own incriminating behavior after she disappeared and his own 11-days
worth of testimony during the five-and-a-half-month trial.
The police found minute traces of
blood at his home and on a blood-stained sleeping bag in his car. By the time
the hidden little Honda CRX was found Reiser had junked the passenger seat and
hosed down the interior leaving an inch of water on the floor.
The cops found two books on
murder investigations that Reiser had just bought in the car.
His little son also testified that
Reiser removed what the boy assumed was Nina’s covered body from the house.
The jury started deliberating last Tuesday afternoon and stopped for a long weekend Thursday, resuming today.
