Police: CA woman cut off husband's penis


Police say a Southern California woman drugged her estranged husband, tied him to a bed, cut off his penis with a knife and threw it down a garbage disposal.

Garden Grove police Lt. Jeff Nightengale tells City News Service the attack occurred Monday night. He says 48-year-old Catherine Kieu Becker was booked at the Orange County Jail for investigation of aggravated mayhem, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, administering a drug with intent to commit a felony, poisoning and spousal abuse.

The 51-year-old victim's name was not released but Nightengale says he is in serious condition after surgery at a hospital.

Nightengale says the woman told responding officers the victim "deserved it."

The woman is due in court Wednesday. A telephone listing for her residence could not be located.
