SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) – Southern California prosecutors say a jealous wife yelled “You deserve it” before severing her estranged husband’s penis with a 10-inch kitchen knife and throwing it in a garbage disposal.

A jury heard opening statements Wednesday in the case of 50-year-old Catherine Kieu, who is accused of drugging her husband’s tofu with sleeping pills and tying him to a bed before the attack.

Deputy District Attorney John Christl says audio of the July 11, 2011, incident was captured by a voice-activated recorder Kieu had hidden in the bedroom.

Deputy Public Defender Frank Bittar says Kieu’s severely traumatic childhood in war-torn Vietnam, including rape by her older brother, caused mental illness that bars her from a mayhem or torture conviction.

  1. Since she has a mental illness that bars her from a mayhem or torture conviction, she should be committed to a mental hospital for the rest of her life.

  2. This isn’t right, because you can’t cut off male genitalia and drug tofu. Lesson is don’t be like the woman in the mug shot.
