'Final Witness': Testimony Of His Young Son Gets Man Convicted Of Killing His Wife (VIDEO)

Conviction in a 2006 murder case came down to the testimony of a young boy. The latest "Final Witness" (Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC) told the story of Nina Reiser through re-enactments and interviews. She was murdered in 2006, but authorities couldn't find her body.

Her husband, Hans, was suspected of the crime, but the wealthy programmer was insistent on his innocence. Still, circumstantial evidence got him put on trial for the murder, and it was there that his fate was sealed.

Nina and Hans' young son had apparently seen much of what happened the night his mother was killed. Through drawings and even acting out what he witnessed, he detailed what happened, including his mother's body being put into a bag.

Hans was found guilty and is currently in prison, where he is reportedly seeking a new trial -- he feels his lawyers failed him. It appears unlikely, though, as he was just ordered additionally to pay $60 million in damages to his son and daughter for the wrongful death of their mother.

True crime stories unfold every week on "Final Witness," Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
