North Carolina woman who tied up 61-year-old husband and chopped off his penis charged with malicious castration
While the motive for the crime is still unclear, 56-year-old Victoria Thomas Frabutt is facing charges of malicious castration and kidnapping in connection to the incident
NEWPORT, NORTH CAROLINA: A North Carolina woman has been arrested and charged after she allegedly pulled a knife on her husband and proceeded to chop off his penis.
Deputies from the Carteret County Sheriff's Office responded to a residence on 202 Murdoch Road, Newport, at around 4 am on September 10, after receiving a call from 61-year-old James Frabutt, who alleged that he had been brutally attacked by his wife, 56-year-old Victoria Thomas Frabutt, according to a press release.
When they arrived at the scene, they found that Victoria had lopped off her husband's penis. Chief Detective Jason Wank said deputies successfully located the severed body part, and that it was immediately put on ice and transported to medical personnel.
James was then rushed to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville for treatment. Authorities said his condition at this time is unknown. Meanwhile, Victoria has been charged with malicious castration and kidnapping in connection to the gruesome incident.
Law and Crime reported that the kidnapping charges stemmed from an allegation that Victoria tied James up before mutilating him, with the law on kidnapping in North Carolina stating that it can apply when someone "unlawfully confine[s], restrain[s]" someone at the age of 16 or older against their will for the purpose of "doing serious bodily harm."
She is currently being held in Carteret County Jail on a $100,000 bond and is scheduled to make her first appearance in court on Wednesday, September 11. This is not the first time that a wife has chopped of her husband's manhood.
We had previously reported that a 48-year-old Ukrainian woman, identified only as Maria, strangled her husband Oleksandr to death with her bare hands while he was sleeping, before grabbing an ax and chopping his head off after suffering years of domestic abuse. Then, in a final act of revenge, she grabbed a kitchen knife and chopped off his genitals, which she then fed to her dogs.
In another such incident, 24-year-old Karuna Sanusan grabbed a 12-inch-long carving knife and hacked off her 40-year-old husband Siripan's penis after finding out that he was having an affair. While he was squirming in pain in a pool of his blood, she took the severed appendage and hurled it out of their bedroom window.
However, unlike these cases, officials have not yet revealed why Victoria attacked her husband.
