Judge reserves Hassan ruling
by Matt Gryta
A judge Friday reserved decision on whether Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan can use an insanity-based emotional disturbance defense in his upcoming trial for allegedly beheading his wife.
Erie County Judge Thomas P. Franzyk previously barred the defense team from using such a defense.
Franzyk, who is slated to begin jury selection Sept. 7 in Has-san's trial in the 2009 beheading of Aasiya Zubair Hassan, did not indicate when he intends to rule on the motion argued by Hassan's lawyers, Jeremy D. Schwartz and Julie Atti Rogers.
