Legal The story of Hans Reiser, the eccentric file system programmer, is a tragic one. The author of the ReiserFS was arrested under suspicion of the murder of his wife Nina Reiser in 2006, and was declared guilty in April 2008. Some still placed doubts about the conviction, stating that he might be innocent. It now seems that all doubt has been quelled, since Alameda County District Attorney Thomas Orloff has revealed that Hans Reiser will disclose the location of Nina's body for a reduced sentence.

What you say essentially translates to that "Hans Reiser Offers To Lead Cops to Nina's Body" is totally irrelevant to this website and shouldn't be covered here at all.

About the case: I think I'm with you about the conviction. Still it is not 100% clear to the public how much hard evidence they really had. From what I read from Wired's blog, it should not be enough to convict anyone. Still I trust the jury more than my personal opinion which is only based on journalist's coverage.
