Founder of US Islamic TV station accused of beheading wife

NEW YORK (CNN) — The founder of an Islamic television station in upstate New York aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes has confessed to beheading his wife, (who was asking for a divorce - JK) authorities said.

I caught a little of this tragic yet ironic story on CNN, butReligion News Blog gives more detail
(Hassan) launched Bridges TV, billed as the first English-language cable channel targeting Muslims inside the United States, in 2004. At the time, Hassan said he hoped the network would balance negative portrayals of Muslims following the attacks of September 11, 2001.

I don't mean to make light of it, but isn't it funny how one little murder can undo an entire life's work.
