TV Executive Accused of Beheading Wife

What is going on in the world today that we hear of people being beheaded so often now? Is it a sign of the times? Police say a television executive from the well-off Buffalo, New York suburb of Orchard Park beheaded his wife after she filed for divorce. He was seeking to improve the image of Muslims in the media. I think he definitely went about it in the wrong way, don't you?

He is scheduled to appear for a felony hearing. I think it should be a first degree murder charge. He is 44 and she was 37. On February 12, he went to a police station and told officers his wife was dead at the TV studio. The slaying gave rise to speculation that it was the sort of "honor killing" more common in countries half a world away including the couple's native Pakistan.
