TV executive guilty of beheading wife
BUFFALO | The founder of a Muslim-oriented New York television station has been convicted of beheading his wife in 2009.
Muzzammil Hassan never denied that he killed Aasiyah Hassan inside the suburban Buffalo station the couple established to promote cultural understanding. A jury on Monday rejected his claim he was the victim of spousal abuse.
Hassan acted as his own lawyer during the trial in Buffalo.
The Pakistan-born Hassan has been in custody since Feb. 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.
Tour guides can’t sue, for now, over tests
PHILADELPHIA | Tour guides upset over a rule that would require them to pass a test to lead visitors around Philadelphia can’t proceed with a free-speech lawsuit while the tests are on hold because of budget woes.
That’s the ruling Monday from a federal appeals court, which was asked to stop the city from licensing tour guides in Philadelphia’s historic area.
The plan is designed to ensure that tourists are getting the straight story on the nation’s birthplace.
The three tour guides who filed suit say they could ace such a test, but they say they shouldn’t have to, under the First Amendment.
The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court says a judge was correct to dismiss the suit as moot until the city acts on the plan.
