February 16, 2009
From Times Online:
The founder of a television station which aims to counteract negative stereotypes of Muslims in America has been charged with beheading his wife.

Muzzamil Hassan, 44, walked into a police station last Thursday evening and told detectives that 37-year-old Aasiya Zubair Hassan's body was lying at the Bridges TV station where they both worked.

"He came into the police station at 6.20pm and told us that she was dead," said Andrew Benz, the police chief in Orchard Park, a suburb of Buffalo in New York state.

Officers went to the headquarters of Bridges TV and found Mrs Hassan lying decapitated in a hallway, having apparently died that afternoon. Police are still hunting for a murder weapon, according to reports in The Buffalo News. Read more
