February 18, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Police say an upstate New York television executive who sought to improve the image of Muslims in the media beheaded his wife last week after she filed for divorce.

Muzzammil Hassan, 44, is charged with murdering his wife, Aasiya Hassan, 37.

Police say he had been kicked out of the house the couple shared in Orchard Park, near Buffalo.

Hassan is accused of cutting off his wife's head at the TV station where he launched his Bridges TV network in 2004.

Hassan later surrendered to police.
