Hans Reiser Murder Trial: Trance Music, Belly Dancing and the Minotaur:
Jurors in the Hans Reiser murder trial here were bewildered as they watched an hourlong videotape of the wedding that was replete with a sexy belly dancer, a labyrinth, trance music and minotaur. Some jurors watched with smiling faces while others exhibited disinterest as the birth of the next-generation Reiser family got underway.
That union, which produced a new generation of Reisers -- two children -- ended with Hans Reiser on trial here. The open source programmer and operator of Namesys is accused of killing Nina Reiser in 2006 amid a bitter divorce and custody battle.
