Woman Accused of Cutting Off Husband's Penis Said he 'Deserved' It


Becker, 48, told police she had drugged her husband’s dinner to make him sleepy, then tied him to the bed. As he awoke, she cut off his penis with a knife, tossed it in the garbage disposal and turned the disposal on. Police untied the victim, who was taken UCI Medical Center, where he underwent emergency surgery. Police said Becker and her husband, 51, were going through a divorce and that she told officers he “deserved it.”

The severe nature of the crime led detectives to classify it as “aggravated mayhem,” an offense punishable by up to life in prison, Nightengale said. “The intention by this person was to permanently deprive this victim of his genitalia,” Nightengale added.
