A Muslim man living in upstate New York beheaded his wife. Police report a history of domestic abuse in the case.

Muslims are not unique in facing this problem; no community is immune, and few talk openly about the issue.

Guests:

Asra Nomani, adjunct instructor of journalism at Georgetown University, and author of "Prelude to Murder" for The Daily Beast

Mohamed Majid, Imam and executive director of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), vice president of the Islamic Society of North America
