Woman cuts off husband's penis & grinds it in the garbage disposal (VIDEO)
Catherine Kieu, 50, is on trial for allegedly cutting off her husband's penis and then grinding it up in the garbage disposal. Unbelievable! The Orange County, California woman reportedly had an argument with her husband at dinner so naturally she laced his tofu with Ambien, waited until he fell asleep, tied him to the bed, severed his penis with a 10-inch kitchen knife, and then ground up said penis in the garbage disposal.
There has got to be more to the story than that, right? I mean this kind of thing doesn't happen every day, I hope.

After the attack, Catherine Kieu called the police. Her husband was taken to the hospital where he had surgery to help him urinate. Understandably, the penis could not be reattached even though parts of it had been recovered from the garbage disposal. Kieu is facing charges of aggravated mayhem and torture.
Tell me this doesn't sound like the plot of a horror movie based on a book by Stephen King? I mean it's just too much.
Prosecutors claim that Catherine was upset that her husband had filed for divorce and that she suspected he was dating a former girlfriend. The victim, a 60-year-old man, told police that he had allowed Kieu to keep living with him because she had nowhere else to go.
Deputy Public Defender Frank Bittar told jurors that his client suffers from mental illness due to her war-torn childhood in Vietnam, he also said that the husband had subjected Kieu to sexual and verbal abuse.
This is one instance where a mental illness defense is offered and I have to absolutely agree. The woman is clearly out of her mind. How else could she have possibly done something so atrocious? Sane people do not do such things.
