In The Spirit of The Bobbit
What is going on in this country? Police say a Southern California woman named Catherine Becker drugged her recently estranged husband, tied him to a bed, then cut off his penis with a knife and threw it down a garbage disposal.
The 51-year-old victim (who's name has not yet been released) is in serious condition after surgery at a hospital says Garden Grove police lieutenant, Jeff Nightengale.
Nightengale tells City News Service that the attack occurred Monday night. He says then 48-year-old Becker was booked at the Orange County Jail for investigation of aggravated mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, administering a drug with intent to commit a felony, poisoning and spousal abuse.
Nightengale also says the woman told responding officers the victim "deserved it."
Catherine Becker is due in court Wednesday.
By no means am I an advocate for any type of domestic violence. And although the circumstances to this story haven't been released yet, on a personal level, all I can do is cringe and hope that no matter what the causality, he didn't "deserve it"!
