Woman Cuts Penis Off Husband And Throws In Garbage Disposal

GARDEN GROVE, California ~ (LA Daily News/AP) ~ A local woman is in custody after authorities say she drugged her estranged husband and tied him to a bed, cut off his penis and then threw it in a garbage disposal.

Garden Grove Police Lieutenant Jeff Nightengale reported that 48-year-old Catherine Kieu Becker drugged a meal and them served it to the victim, her unidentified 51-year-old husband, on the night of July 11th. Later the man felt sick and went to lie down and lost consciousness. Becker then removed his clothes, tied his arms and legs to the bed with rope and then attacked him with a 10-inch kitchen knife as he awoke. "He was conscious when his penis was removed," Nightengale said.

Becker then put the amputated organ in a garbage disposal and turned it on. She then called 911 and indicated to arriving officers that the victim was in the next room, where paramedics found him tied up and bleeding profusely. Becker was taken into custody without incident, although she would not talk to police officers, Nightengale said. She was booked into Orange County Jail and bail was set at $1 million 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 victim underwent surgery at the University of California at Irvine Medical Center and was listed in serious condition; Nightengale said the man was expected to survive. Lourdes Painter, a neighbor of the couple, said the two had been married since December, had no children and lived very quietly. Nightengale said the couple was reportedly going through a divorce and said there was no record of any previous calls to the house by the police. He also didn't comment on what type of food the couple had for dinner.
