Legal In October 2006, Hans Reiser, creator of the ReiserFS filesystem, was arrested under the suspicion of the murder of his wife, Nina, who had disappeared off the face of the earth after dropping their two children off at Hans' home. The two were divorced, and fighting a legal battle over ownership of the Namesys company and the custody of their children. Even though the body was never found, he has been declared guilty of first degree murder.

I just love the "Quote the Bible"-game. Specially without any further information, as you can interpret Bible in many ways.

Like "For wages of sin is death..." Rom 6:23a.

Anyways, I too find it a bit weird to be sentenced without any hard evidence, but hey, here in Europe (Estonia at least) you'd probably only get 5-10 years for homicide, even when there's a body and witnesses.
