Muslim TV Exec Found Guilty in Wife's Beheading

Ad Feedback

A former New York television executive has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison for beheading his wife in 2009.

Muzzammil Hassan is the founder of Bridges TV, a station aimed at countering negative stereotypes of Muslims.

The Pakistan-born Muslim was served divorce papers one week before police found his wife's body at the television station in Buffalo. She'd been stabbed and decapitated.

Some speculated that the beheading was an Islamic "honor killing."

Hassan claimed his wife's death was justified and said he was abused and afraid of her.

Prosecutors argued Hassan was trying to control her after she filed for divorce.

It only took jurors one hour of deliberation to find him guilty of second-degree murder.
