Muzzammil Hassan - Knife slipped, accidentally cut off her head
New York man found guilty of second degree murder in wife's beheading
Muzzammil Hassan was convicted Monday in the 2009 beheading death of his wife, Aasiya Hassan.
A New York jury on Monday found Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan guilty of second-degree murder for the 2009 beheading of his wife.
Hassan, who founded a TV network aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes, went to a police station in February 2009 in the Buffalo, New York, suburb of Orchard Park and told officers his wife was dead, police have said. Aasiya Hassan had been decapitated.
The jury deliberated for an hour before delivering the verdict.
