California Mrs cuffed in drugged-hubby todger slash case
Unhappy man's manhood macerated in garbage disposal
A California woman who may have been a tad unhappy about her impending divorce allegedly drugged her estranged hubby's dinner, tied him to a bed, cut off his todger with a 10-inch kitchen knife, and then disposed of the detached penis in the garbage grinder.
Catherine Kieu Becker, 48, (pictured), apparently called cops to the couple's home in Garden Grove, Orange County, at around 9pm on Monday.
Officers found "a bleeding man tied to a bed", sans pecker – something which he "deserved", according to Becker's spontaneous statement.
Lt Jeff Nightengale of the Garden Grove Police Department said police have "nothing more than the divorce proceeding" as a possible motive for the attack. The 51-year-old husband initiated the unhitching process back in May after 11-and-a-half years of marriage, the LA Times notes.
Nightengale insisted: "We don't have any strong motive leading to this level of violence."
Becker was cuffed on suspicion of "aggravated mayhem, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, administering a drug with intent to commit a felony, poisoning and spousal abuse", and is being held on $1m bail.
The aggravated mayhem rap – which carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment – reflects the seriousness of the attack, Nightengale explained. He said: "You're not just depriving a person of a member or portion of their body or disfiguring them.
"You're doing something that's so egregious we're not sure what's going to happen, if they're going to be able to reattach this or repair this person after such a violent attack."
The victim underwent emergency surgery at UC Irvine Medical Center on Tuesday and was reported as being in "good condition". He declined to speak to the press, and dismissed the Orange County Register with a simple: "This is a private matter." ®
Sadly, this is not surprising.
The family law system (and the law in general) is so completely fucked up that it encourages this sort of behaviour; women routinely receive “sentencing discounts” (far lighter sentences than a man would receive in the same situation) and all too often their violent acts are ignored. I became quite well aware of this 12 years ago, when my wife attacked me — for the third time, unprovoked — and strangled me with homicidal intent in front of our eldest daughter, then 3 years old. As with the first two times she launched unprovoked assaults on me, when the cops came they observed that one of us was in possession of a Y chromosome; that person was declared responsible and hauled off. As they said, verbatim: “We remove men from domestic violence incidents.”
Following that I have tried for a dozen years to get charges pressed, without so much as even getting a cop to write down the fact that I want charges pressed. In 2007: “Well, it was a long time ago, and besides, it’s only homicide,” sagely observed one cop. I still don’t know what that is supposed to mean.
I'm going to go out on a limb
And hypothesize that her temper was a factor in his desire for divorce.
Throw the book at her
Lt Jeff Nightengale of the Garden Grove Police Department said police have "nothing more than the divorce proceeding" as a possible motive for the attack.
Is this surprising if he was married to a woman who is prepared to do this sort of damage to him with that degree of premeditation.
If she wanted "Revenge" she should have lawyered up and done it through the courts
Seriously any person who is prepared to disfigure a spouse or other human being to this degree regardless of genders involved needs to go away for a long time
