Cruel Separation

Oh no, not another one of these stories:

A Southern California woman was in custody Tuesday after authorities said she drugged her estranged husband, tied him to a bed, cut off his penis and put it through a garbage disposal.

Garden Grove police Lt. Jeff Nightengale said that Catherine Kieu Becker drugged a meal and served it to the victim, whose name was not released, shortly before the attack Monday night.

Nightengale said the 51-year-old man felt sick, went to lie down and lost consciousness. The 48-year-old Becker then tied the victim’s arms and legs to the bed with rope, removed his clothes and attacked him with a 10-inch kitchen knife as he awoke, Nightengale said.

“He was conscious when his penis was removed,” Nightengale said.

Nightengale said Becker put the penis in the garbage disposal and turned it on.

Yeah, I had to Google Lorena Bobbitt for a point of reference. Although the facts of the two cases are dissimilar (apparently) given the target of her aggression, a ready made defense already presents itself.

Other sources reveal that the husband was the one that filed for divorce, so we know he was unhappy.

I have to admit, when I first read this story I figured the wife would probably walk. Lorena convinced the jury that he had it coming because he was so abusive to her in the past, I guess getting out of the marriage was just too damned difficult, cutting off his dick made more sense.

Bail for Becker was set at $1 million after she was booked at the Orange County Jail 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.

All easily explained away to a sympathetic jury in that he clearly had it coming. Police records show no prior police contacts and neighbors portray them as a quiet couple. No matter, the chauvinist most have done something to make her snap, cutting off his dick is obviously a sexual cry for help, the provocation must have been so extreme that the fact that she did not kill him outright shows remarkable calm and poise. Women in abusive relationships can’t be held viable for their actions, irresistible impulses happen.

Not guilty, by reason of…………oh,who cares?

    If he’d followed this by shooting her, I don’t think any jury would have convicted him. I remember when the Lorena Bobbitt thing happened and everyone was laughing about it. Rush — who was still sane at that time — asked what woudl be saying if a man sexually mutilated his wife and said she had it coming.

    This whole situation is messed up but

    and put it through a garbage disposal.

    That part is really fucked up. I have a feeling it might actually serve to doom her too since it shows that she probably remembers that, in the Bobbit case, re-attachment worked so she wanted to make sure that couldn’t happen this time.
