THE founder of a New York television station has been convicted of beheading his wife in 2009.
Pakistan-born Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan never denied that he killed Aasiyah Hassan inside the suburban Buffalo station the couple established to promote cultural understanding between Americans and Muslims.
A jury rejected his claim he was the victim of spousal abuse.
Hassan acted as his own lawyer during the trial in Buffalo.
He has been in custody since February 12, 2009, when he walked into the Orchard Park police station and told officers his wife was dead.
Her decapitated body was found at the studios of Bridges TV in town.
The Hassans had two young children.
