Despite numerous assertions of his innocence during his murder trial, Bay Area computer programmer Hans Reiser took his defense attorney and authorities to the location where he buried his dead wife, Nina.
On July 7, 2008, police say Reiser, while handcuffed to one of his defense attorneys, brought cops to a remote, rugged area of the Oakland hills to retrieve a body which has now been identified as Nina Reiser.
The location was less than a mile away from the home where Hans Reiser lived and where Nina was last seen on September 3, 2006.
Hans Reiser is supposed to be sentenced on July 9, 2008.
Prosecutor Paul Hora says Reiser's revelation was part of a proposed deal that would reduce his conviction from first to second-degree murder -- a deal that still needs to be approved by a judge and would reduce his possible sentencing from 25 years to life to 15 years to life.
