Psychiatric defense likely in NY wife beheading

A man accused of beheading his wife at the Muslim-American television station they founded is likely to pursue a psychiatric defense in the murder case.

Muzzammil Hassan is the founder of Bridges TV — an Islamic television station in upstate New York aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes.

Hassan was charged with second-degree murder after police found the decapitated body of his wife, Aasiya Hassan.
