Soon after Robert Williams stabbed his wife, Sakina Wallace, in the neck more than 30 times, killing her, he submitted to a police interview.
On the videotape,
A detective showed Williams a photo of Wallace and referred to the victim as a Muslim woman. In turn, Williams responded: “Muslim woman? If she was a Muslim woman none of this (expletive) would even exist.”
At trial, the prosecutors said that Williams, 41, had gotten it into his head that Wallace was cheating on him, and that he killed her because
“… he objected to her behavior in their Muslim community.”
