Beheading trial opens in New York for TV executive

A prosecutor has said a TV executive accused of beheading his wife stabbed her 40 times before completing his “final act of domination and control”: a jury in New York state was told that Muzzammil Hassan had killed Aasiya Hassan, whose body was found at a TV station, because she filed for divorce: Muzzamil Hassan founded a US Muslim television network to counter negative images of Muslims after the 9/11 terror attacks.
