Cornhole Watch: Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan Gets 25 to Life
CNN just ran a banner of the sentence for Hassan. Here is the rest of the article.
A New York television executive convicted of second-degree murder in his wife's beheading is expected to be sentenced Wednesday.
An upstate New York jury found Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan guilty in February after a three-week trial and an hour-long deliberation.
In February 2009, Hassan, who founded a TV network aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes, went to a police station in the Buffalo, New York, suburb of Orchard Park and told officers his wife was dead, police have said.
Aasiya Hassan had been decapitated and the long knife used by her husband had left marks on his office's tile floor, prosecutors said during opening arguments.
