Arraignment has been postponed for a Southern California woman charged with cutting off a man's penis and throwing it into a garbage disposal.
Catherine Kieu stood in a screened inmate area in an Orange County courtroom on Monday for what was supposed to be an appearance to enter a plea.
But her arraignment was delayed until Feb. 2.
A superseding indictment issued last week charges the 48-year-old woman with felony torture and felony aggravated mayhem for the July 11 attack.
Investigators say Kieu lived with the 60-year-old victim and the pair got into an argument over a future houseguest's visit.
Authorities allege that after the man went to sleep, Kieu tied him to the bed and severed the organ.
Kieu faces a possible life prison sentence if convicted.
