Woman Cuts Off Husband’s Penis with Knife
A 48-year-old woman from Garden Grove, Orange County, California is facing the prospect of spending the rest of her life in jail after she cut off the penis of her estranged husband with a kitchen knife.
Catherine Kieu Becker was taken into custody Monday after she allegedly drugged her husband’s food, causing him to momentarily lose consciousness. After her husband lost consciousness, Becker reportedly tied the man to a bed before proceeding to sever his member. Not contented, Becker allegedly threw the severed penis into the garbage disposal. “She tied him to the bed and as he woke the female cut off his penis with a knife. The female tossed the penis in the garbage disposal and turned the disposal to the ‘On’ position,” a police report said.
Becker reportedly called 911 after the incident and told the operator that her 51-year-old husband deserved it. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office said Becker has been charged with one felony count each for torture, aggravated mayhem, and bodily injury with a knife. If convicted on all counts, she could be imprisoned for life with a possibility for parole.
Garden Grove police Lt. Jeff Nightengale reportedly told RadarOnline that Becker was upset that her husband filed for divorce earlier this year.
