Prominent Orchard Park man charged with beheading his wife

Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband -- an influential member of the local Muslim community -- reported her death to police Thursday.

Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.

"He came to the police station at 6:20 p.m. [Thursday] and told us that she was dead," Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz said late this morning.

Muzzammil Hassan told police that his wife was at his business, Bridges TV, on Thorn Avenue in the village. Officers went to that location and discovered her body.

Muzzammil Hassan is the founder and chief executive officer of Bridges TV, which he launched in 2004, amid hopes that it would help portray Muslims in a more positive light.

In a heat of passion.

Easier to prove, usually the same punishment as 1st Degree.

Beheading their wives - that’s about as positive as they’ll get.

In NY State, unless they’ve changed it, first degree is killing a law officer and Second Degree is premeditated murder of anyone else.

Gee, what a coincidence. Muslim, beheading. He probably thinks that this honor killing paints Muslims in a positive light.

I grew up in Orchard Park. This office is right next door to the Catholic grammar school I went to.
I just told my 81 year old mother about this. The only thing she has heard about today on the news was the plane crash. She still lives in Orchard Park, NY.
It is funny how things change.

No kidding!! I despise these Muzzies and then our stupid voters put someone in the WH who at least has Muzzie sentiments. I'm not going to call him a Muzzie because I don't know but let's just say, I don't trust him at all.

Can you believe that this country would elect someone with the middle name of Hussein so soon after 9/11?

Considered in a moral relativist way, as modern liberals do, what’s not more positive about this?

First, he only beheaded one person. That’s postive, isn’t it?

Second, she was HIS wife. If a Muslim man can’t do with his own property as he wishes, what’s this country coming to? You have to admit, by going to court she specifically and publicly challenged his authority, something intolerable to a Muslim husband, and she had to know it, didn’t she?

It’s not like he went out and beheaded a whole bunch of innocent people he didn’t even know.

So, all in all, I’d say he’s showing Muslims in a more positive light than some might imagine. We need to think more multi-culturally these days. I’m afraid you might not be multi-culti enough for this Hopey-Changie world of the modern U.S., also known as the Obamanation.

First degree = premeditation and planning.
Second Degree = reactionary violence.

Second degree generally carries a 25 to life sentence in most stated with parole possible.
First degree, in most cases, is a mandatory life sentence, but some states still give options.
Capital crimes must be first degree, and in most states require additional aggravating factors or crimes.

The statement that 1st and 2nd carry the same punishment is entirely incorrect.

Exactly - the difference is premeditation.

Kind of hard to argue that you sawed someones head off without thought.

Sawing off a head is unlikely to be the cause of death. It is the moment of impetus that often defines the case for premeditation. Lawyers continue to try to use post-mortem activities to define premeditation, but it is a tough sell.

It’s not that he sawed off her head - it’s when he bought the saw (etc.) that may help to show premeditation.

Authorities say Aasiya Hassan recently had filed for divorce from her husband. "She had an order of protection that had him out of the home as of Friday the 6th [of February],"

Sad. Another death by protective order.
