Karen Hicks, wife of Craig Stephen Hicks who is accused of shooting three Muslim students near the University of North Carolina campus, says her husband treated people "as equal."

"We were married for seven years and that is one thing that I do know about him -- he often champions on his facebook page for the rights of many individuals. For same-sex marriages, abortion, race..." Hicks said.
