Buffalo, NY – It took a jury less than an hour to return a guilty verdict in the murder trial of Muzzamil Hassan, who now awaits sentencing on March 9th for the brutal slaying of his wife two years ago this Saturday.

WBFO's Michael Mroziak was in the courtroom when the verdict was announced and has reaction.

Jurors spent less than an hour behind a closed door before returning to the courtroom with a guilty verdict. They did not comment to reporters after the trial ended. But minutes after Muzzamil Hassan was led away in handcuffs, District Attorney Frank Sedita praised his team of prosecutors for a successful job under unique and difficult circumstances.
