Catherine Kieu Becker is a Southern California woman accused of cutting off her husband’s penis and throwing it into a garbage disposal
The Vietnam-born Becker, who is also known as Que Anh Tran, is also facing special allegations, or sentencing enhancements, for great bodily injury and personal use of a deadly weapon, specifically a knife, according to the felony complaint.
If convicted on all counts, she would face a maximum sentence of life without the possibility of parole, prosecutors said.
Becker told authorities her husband “deserved it” when officers arrived at the scene after she called 911, the police report says.
They have no children, and their only shared assets are a condominium and a 2010 Toyota Prius, court papers said
Becker then tied her husband’s legs and arms to the four corners of the bed with nylon rope, according to the district attorney’s office. As he woke, she pulled down his pants, grabbed his penis and severed it with a knife, prosecutors said.
Becker then took the penis to the kitchen, threw it into the garbage disposal and turned it on, “mutilating the organ,” the prosecutors’ statement said.
This case was compared to another:
Lorena Bobbitt then drove away, tossing the penis out her car window. The penis was eventually found and surgically reattached. Lorena Bobbitt was later found innocent by reason of insanity. During her testimony, she tearfully described her life at the hands of her abusive husband. In a separate trial, John Wayne Bobbitt was acquitted of sexually assaulting his wife. He later made appearances on “The Howard Stern Show.” He also made a number of adult films.
