(Newser) – The founder of a Muslim TV network in New York has been charged with beheading his wife in the midst of an acrimonious divorce. Muzzammil Hassan, 44, was busted last week after he told police his wife's body could be found at his Buffalo offices and confessed to her murder, reports CNN. Hassan had a history of domestic violence, according to cops. He launched his Bridges TV operation in 2004 to show Muslims in a positive light.
