Jurors only took an hour to determine that Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan was guilty. Hassan stabbed and beheaded his wife, Aasiya two years ago, at the Orchard Park TV station they owned.
Hassan says, quote, "There's a disconnect between what the outside world is seeing and what's happening privately."

The jury needed only 60-minutes to unanimously reject that claim.
Hassan faces 25 years to life in prison when he's sentenced March 9th.
