Woman Convicted Of Torture In Penis Slashing
A Southern California woman could spend the rest of her life in prison for cutting off her husband’s penis. Catherine Kieu of Orange County went on trial as prosecutors said she wouldn’t agree to her husband’s demand for a divorce and instead laced a meal with Ambien to drug him.
The 50-year-old tied him to a bed, sliced off his penis and tossed it in the garbage disposal to mutilate it. She was convicted yesterday of aggravated mayhem and torture despite arguments from her attorney who said she suffered a “break from reality” when the incident happened. She will be sentenced in late June for the 2011 attack.
