Oakland, Calif (AP) Authorities in Alameda County, California, are set to examine a body that has been removed from a remote area of the Oakland Hills.
Prominent computer programmer Hans Reiser led police to the shallow grave less than a mile from where his estranged wife, Nina, was last seen nearly two years ago.
A sheriff's department spokesman says the rugged canyon where the body was found “is a difficult scene to process.”
Reiser is due in court tomorrow to face sentencing. He was convicted of murdering his wife back in April.
His lawyer will not comment on speculation that Reiser agreed to lead police to the grave to get a reduced sentence. Reiser now faces a sentence of 25 years to life in prison.
