Perhaps this story is one more reason some of you (men) wouldn't miss Southern California.
An angry and bitter wife from Orange County decided she couldn't wait for her pending divorce to go through, so she cut off her husband's penis and then tossed it into the garbage disposal to boot.
Police say Catherine Kieu Becker made her husband a delicious dinner and served it to him. He gobbled up the food -- and the poison laced in it.
As the dinner kicked in, the 51-year-old man started to feel sick and went to lie down. That's when he lost consciousness. Becker used that moment to tie his arms and legs to the bed and strip him naked. She took a 10-inch kitchen knife and began sawing away at her husband's penis, according to police.
Naturally, this stirred him awake. "He was conscious when his penis was removed," police told reporters.
As if that wasn't painful enough, Becker then tossed his private part into the garbage disposal and turned it on.
She did have the courtesy to call 911. When police arrived, she told them that "he deserved it" as she pointed to the room where her husband was bleeding profusely. He was taken to a local hospital and is reportedly recovering after surgery.
Police took Becker into custody, but she reportedly refused to talk to officers. The couple is in the middle of a divorce -- obviously. Becker was arrested on suspicion of aggravated mayhem, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon,
administering a drug with intent to commit a felony, poisoning, and
Reporters contacted the victim, who refused to talk to the media. He would only say that this is, uhhh, a "private matter."
