Joshua Davis Email 03.09.07 | 3:00 PM

OAKLAND, California -- Prominent Bay Area Linux programmer Hans Reiser, 43, must stand trial for the alleged murder of his estranged wife, who's been missing since September, a judge ruled Friday.

Judge Julie Conger concluded that there "was a strong suspicion that, if not personally responsible, Reiser had some part in the disappearance" of his wife, 31-year-old Nina Reiser.

The ruling capped three months of preliminary hearings to determine if there's sufficient evidence to try the case. According to William DuBois, Reiser's lawyer, Reiser is now likely to go to trial within the next 90 days.

Sadomasochism, Spies In Reiser Murder Hearing

(CBS 5 / AP / BCN) OAKLAND The attorney for an Oakland computer programmer accused of murdering his wife - although her body has not been found - suggested Monday that she may have been killed by an ex-boyfriend who's into sadomasochism or because of alleged Russian spy connections.

Hans Reiser was arrested in October after Oakland police said they found the blood of his estranged and missing wife, Nina Reiser, in his home and car. Authorities said they have biological and trace evidence suggesting that she is dead and claimed that the blood evidence tied Hans Reiser to her death.

ReiserFS programmer arrested as murder suspect

Posted by Stephen Shankland

Hans Reiser, the 42-year-old founder of the ReiserFS file system software used in some versions of Linux, has been arrested as a suspect in the supposed murder of his estranged wife, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday.

Reiser's wife, Nina, 31, who filed for divorce in 2004, has been missing since Sept. 3, and police have evidence suggesting she's dead, the Chronicle reported. "All avenues led us to Mr. Reiser being responsible for the death and disappearance of Ms. Nina Reiser," Oakland police Lt. Ersie Joyner was quoted as saying. "We feel very strongly that the D.A. (district attorney) will file charges against him and that we will prosecute him with or without a body."
