Hassan to plead insanity
My religion made me do it
But that’s not how the defense will spin it,…it’s not Islam to blame,…the man is just mentally unbalanced. Well actually it’s both, the insane religion happen to encourage its followers to do insane things. Thanks to TINSC for finding this story. KGS
(Al-AP) — BUFFALO, N.Y. – 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 (moo-ZAHM’-mel HAH’-sahn) is scheduled to be tried in January for the killing of Aasiya (AH’-see-ya) Hassan at the offices of Bridges TV in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park.
During a pretrial hearing in Erie County Court on Friday, attorney James Harrington says a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Aasiya’s estate is holding up psychiatric testing. But he says he’s considering a defense of extreme emotional disturbance focusing on his client’s state of mind at the time he’s accused of killing his wife in February.
