NBC11 News has learned the Alameda County district attorney’s office will charge Hans Reiser with one count of murder Thursday morning.

The arrest comes a day after police and FBI agents searched Hans Reiser’s Exeter Drive home for a second time, and while police did not reveal specific evidence found Monday night, they did say that they served a search warrant for documents as well as forensic and biological evidence. Cadaver dogs were also used in the search.

UPDATE: Police: Books, Bloody Sleeping Bag Led To Reiser Arrest

Police said they believe the couple’s children were in the house when Hans Reiser allegedly killed his wife that day, according to a probable cause statement filed by investigators Thursday. Interviews with the children revealed that the two were allegedly arguing upstairs while the children played downstairs.

At one point, the boy went to his parents, and his father told him to leave and “not to come back upstairs, not even to the kitchen area,” Officer Ryan Gill wrote in the statement.

According to a probable cause statement, police found a roll of large trash bags, two books, “Homicide” and “Masterpieces of Murder,” and a bloodstained sleeping bag.
