From: larry.r.trout

'A former television executive was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison Wednesday for the beheading death of his wife...

Hassan was the chief executive officer of the network Bridges TV, and Aasiya Hassan was the general manager.

He launched network -- 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 terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.'
