A Southern California woman got revenge on her husband who was divorcing her by cutting off his penis and putting it a garbage disposal.
48-year old Catherine Kieu Becker was arrested Monday night at the Garden Grove home she was sharing with the victim until their divorce is finalized.
Police say Becker drugged her husband's dinner to make him sleepy. When he went to lie down, she tied him to the bed and cut off his penis. Then put in a garbage disposal and ground it up.
"The victim went to lie down and he woke up tied to the bed with his wife tugging his clothes off," police said. "The suspect grabbed the victim's penis and cut it off."
After injuring her husband, Becker called 911. When police arrived she told them "he deserved it." Her husband was found still tied to the bed and bleeding from the groin area.
The 51-year old man was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange. Pieces of the penis were brought to the hospital, but it remained unclear whether surgeons were able to reattach it according to MSNBC.
The couple have been married less than two years.
Becker was booked for aggravated mayhem, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, administering a drug with intent to commit a felony, poisoning, and spousal abuse. She is being held at the Orange County Jail on $1 million bail. If convicted of all charges she could face life in prison.
The husband is listed in good condition by the hospital.
