Basically his estranged wife, Nina Reiser, went missing a few years back. Following an investigation some overwhelming evidence was found that would seem to suggest he murdered her. His defense is that his ex-wife framed him, embezzled his company’s money and then fled back to Russia. On top of this he seems to be trying to get a sort of geek defense behind him because he claims that society today hates people like him, i.e. geeks with strange ideas who spend their time playing violent video games.
There’s no doubt he’s a strange character but from the sounds of his best friend and wife he’s in good company.
It’ll be interesting to see how this story pans out.
