He still maintains that HE was an abused husband.
KATU –BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The founder of a Muslim-oriented New York television station has been convicted of beheading his wife in 2009.
Muzzammil “Mo” Hassan never denied that he killed Aasiyah Hassan inside the suburban Buffalo station the couple established to promote cultural understanding.
A jury on Monday rejected his claim he was the victim of spousal abuse. Hassan acted as his own lawyer during the trial in Buffalo.
The Pakistan-born Hassan has been in custody since Feb. 12, 2009, when he walked into the Orchard Park police station and told officers his wife was dead.
Her decapitated body was found at the studios of Bridges TV in town. The Hassans had two young children.
