New York man found guilty of murder in wife's beheading

A New York jury on Monday found Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan guilty of second-degree murder for the 2009 beheading of his wife.

His legal adviser, Jeremy Schwartz, said that Hassan, who made closing arguments on his own behalf, may appeal the verdict.

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.

    I was baptized a few days after I was born...baptized into the Roman Catholic Church. Can you tell me why people who say they are Christian don't think I'M a Christian, too? Just wondering what your thoughts on this are...

    A station aimed at countering muslim stereotypes?! Takes one to know one, I guess. Poor woman. They should force him to drag her head around by a chain attached to his ankle.

    In NY 1st degree murder is reserved for the killing of a police officer, corrections officer or other person acting under color of office. NY's death penalty has been invalidated by the courts. This grim reaper faces 25 to life for his act.

    Although the guy is clearly demented, it can be surmised that his wife was obviously talking way too much...she just wouldn't stop!!! Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah... So he thought... 'I can just tell her to shut up and be quiet', but up till now that hasn't worked very well and after some time the blabbering starts up again...or.....I know....a more permanent solution............'I'll just cut her head off', YES!!! that will do it. Cut the head!!! And it worked...

    So if any men out there are having the same problem, look for the more permanent solution to your problem..It really works. Just cut off her head and cut your bills in half at the same time. Kill two birds with one cut.
