Lorena Bobbit Strikes Again?

On Monday July 11th, Catherine Kieu Becker of Garden Grove, CA, was arrested for allegedly poisoning her estranged husband, tying him to a bed and cutting off his penis with a 10-inch kitchen knife then throwing it in a garbage disposal.

According to Amy Taxin of the Associated Press, “On Monday night, police say Kieu spiked a meal and served it to the victim. The 60-year-old man started to feel sick and went to lie down, then awoke tied to the bed as Kieu attacked him with a 10-inch kitchen knife and then she put the penis down a garbage disposal.”

After the incident, Kieu promptly called 911 to report a medical emergency and told the responding officer that her husband “deserved it.” When officers arrived, they found the 60 year old man tied to the bed and bleeding from the groin area. He was immediately taken to UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange County and underwent emergency surgery. His condition was upgraded to good by the medical staff on Tuesday night.

Becker was arrested right away and faces the charges of aggravated mayhem, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, administering a drug with intent to commit a felony, poisoning and spousal abuse. If convicted on the felony charges of torture and aggravated mayhem, she could face life in prison.

What may have lead to this gruesome crime is still unknown to investigators. However, what is known is that the couple had been married since 2009, but is in the process of getting a divorce.  There are speculations that motives for the crime could be an argument over houseguests or an inappropriate relationship by the husband.

I don’t know what the husband did to “deserve it”, but I’m sure every guy can agree with me that no one deserves to get poisoned and then have their penis cut off. In my opinion this is one of the worst things, if not, the worst thing you can do to a guy. The fact Catherine Kieu Becker can even think of something like this is just sickening and proves there’s something wrong with her mentally.

Many people on the internet have made references to the Lorena Bobbit case, but there are differences that people are overlooking. The only similarity between the Bobbit and Kieu incident is that the wife severed the penis of the husband and then called the police. The big difference is that there was evidence of domestic abuse in the Bobbit case and many people felt a great deal of sympathy for Lorena. Another difference is that Lorena didn’t plan any of her actions on the night of the incident. Kieu on the other hand purposely poisoned her husband’s dinner, and tied him to the bed with the intention of severing his penis.

Whether there is any evidence of domestic abuse or if she will be found not guilty remains to be seen, because much of the details regarding this case have not come to light. How this will turn out will interest many people, and hopefully justice can be served.

    I don’t think that the Bobbit case has anything to do with this either. Lorena Bobbit did what she did the night her husband raped her after years of abuse and shortly after he forced her to have an abortion. She immediately called the police on herself after she came out of a haze and realized what she did.

    Catherine Keui was estranged from her husband of less than 2 years. He was the one filing for divorce and this was pre-meditated.

    I thought Lorena Bobbit should have served time, though a reduced sentence. This chick can get the life sentence she deserves though. If this was a case of just spousal abuse and she felt she had to, ya know, hurt him to get away. It would not have happened like this. Most women with rape trauma syndrome which causes this type of breakdown, call the police on themselves like Bobbit did. Also, had it just been abuse, she could have just poisoned him and tied him up and run away. Instead, she went those extra steps and castrated him and tried to put it down a garabage disposal.

    Also, I know this is a serious story, but I really thing that this is a prime moment for penal system jokes though.
