A Californian woman convicted of severing her ex-husband’s penis and throwing it in a kitchen waste disposal has been sentenced to life imprisonment.
According to prosecutors, Catherine Kieu attacked her former spouse with a knife in July 2011 after drugging him with sleeping pills. Prosecutors in Orange County, California further said she also tied him to the bed before committing the act.
Kieu , 50, told officers responding to the scene that her husband deserved it, and it’s clear she may seek parole after seven years. Her lawyers held she had mental health issues caused by abuse as a child and by her ex-husband. Police have revealed the couple was going through a divorce at the time of the attack
