I guess Catherine Becker wasn't gonna give her husband the chance of reconstructive surgery. John Wayne Bobbitt's severed penis was in reusable condition after wife Lorena took a knife to it:
"It was an intact penis, very cleanly cut," recalls Jim Sehn, the urological surgeon. "It was not crushed. It was not visibly soiled."The story's at Los Angeles Times, "Woman accused of cutting off husband's penis said he 'deserved' it," and KTLA, "Penis Attack: Wife Cuts off Husband's Penis, Tosses it in Garbage Disposal."
GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (KTLA) -- A woman is under arrest after police say she drugged her husband, cut off his penis and threw it into the garbage disposal.More at the link above.
Garden Grove police were sent to the home in the 14000 block of Flower Street around 9 p.m. Monday night after a woman called 911 for a medical emergency, according to Lt. Jeff Nightengale. When officers arrived, they found a man bleeding from the crotch area.
The woman, identified as Catherine Becker, 48, the victim's wife, had put an unknown type of poison and/or drug into her husband's food to make him sleepy, according to Nightengale. She then tied him to the bed. When he woke up, she cut off his penis with a knife, investigators said. She then tossed the penis in the garbage disposal and turned it on.
Mrs. Becker is in police custody.
I'm interested to see the feminist response: Striking a slash against the patriarchy?
