Move Over Lorena Bobbit, Here Comes Catherine Kieu Becker

Good news everyone. The West Coast has its own psychotic, penis-cutting scorned wife. No longer will we have to sit silent at East Coast cocktail parties when the subject of Lorena Bobbit comes up. According to the LA Times, 48-year-old Catherine Kieu Becker told Garden Grove police she drugged her husband, tied him to the bed and cut his penis off. She said he “deserved” it and spoke no more.

From the Times:

The victim, who was not identified, told detectives that Becker made him dinner, but he believed something was wrong with his food. He went to lie down and when he woke up he found himself tied to the bed, with his wife tugging his clothes off, he said. She then allegedly cut off his penis and threw it in the garbage disposal.

No word yet on whether or not she actually turned on the disposal. All joking aside, this is the most horrendous thing we’ve heard since we learned John Lennon was a closet Reagan fan.
