Murder conviction for Albany man in wife slaying

The zebibah, Arabic for raisin, is a dark circle of callused skin, or in some cases a protruding bump, between the hairline and the eyebrows. It emerges on the spot where worshipers press their foreheads into the ground during their daily prayers.

Another pious and observent Muslim goes sudden jihad by murdering his non-Muslim wife because he objected to her behavior in the Muslim community.  That this guy is a pious Muslim as shown by the zebibah on his forehead.  Notice that he stabbed her over 30 times in the neck, following the pedophile Mohammed's  command to strike the necks of the kuffar.

A jury spent roughly an hour and 10 minutes Friday to convict Robert Williams of murdering his wife in her West Hill home last spring.

The panel of nine women and three men quickly rejected the arguments of Williams' attorney, Michael Jurena, who admitted Williams killed his wife but claimed it was first-degree manslaughter, not second-degree murder.

That charge would have brought a maximum of 25 years in prison for Williams, 41, a convicted sex offender. He now faces 25 years to life for the murder conviction at his March 7 sentencing.

Sharene Wallace, 37, known as Sakina, was stabbed more than 30 times in the neck inside 279 Sherman St. between May 26 and May 29. Her body was found stuffed in a closet. Williams, who fled to New York City before his arrest, admitted killing his new bride to friends and spoke at length to Albany police.

Chief Assistant District Attorney David Rossi said Williams believed Wallace was cheating on him, but killed his wife because he objected to her behavior in their Muslim community.

"I think it's clear the defendant felt slighted by Sharene," Rossi told jurors. "He may regret where he sits today. He does not regret what he did."

He played the jury part of Williams' videotaped interview with police. 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."
