An accountant who was convicted of hacking off her lover's penis with garden shears during a BDSM session has now been jailed for 13 years.

28-year-old Brenda Barattini was found guilty of the attempted murder of 42-year-old musician Sergio Fernandez following a trial in the Argentinian city of Cordoba, Daily Mail reports.

She claimed had not intended on killing her victim but admitted she had planned the November 25, 2017 attack well in advance before it grabbed international headlines.

In court, she revealed she plotted to harm Fernandez after he apparently treated her like a "trophy" and allegedly shared sex tapes and x-rated photos of her with friends. "He turned me into a sex object. I was just a s**g for him," she said. "He infringed my privacy, my life, and my career. Everything has been ruined."

Barattini reportedly put a blindfold on the victim before the attack.

"After she put the blindfold on, she told me I had to guess where she was touching me," Fernandez told the court. "She also wanted to tie me up but I didn't let her. She began to practice oral sex on me. I suddenly felt something. She wanted to kill me in that second."

Barattini was likened to Lorena Bobbit by some Argentinian outlets when the attack took place. Back in 1993, Bobbit chopped off her husband's penis and threw it into a field.

Barattini had initially claimed Fernandez was about to sexually assault her and she was just defending herself, but she later changed her story.

Fernandez was rescued by neighbors who heard him shouting, and found he had lost 90 percent of his manhood along with a testicle.

The victim spent eight days in a coma after the assault. After regaining consciousness, he said his penis is now "different" and he suffers regular panic attacks and insomnia. He also claimed he had a constant feeling women would kill him if he had sex with them.

That said, the jury unanimously decided to convicted Barattini before three trial judges sentenced her to 13 years in prison.

Lucas de Olmos, her defense lawyer, told reporters outside the court the decision was "unheard of."

"No-one has ever been convicted in this country of attempted murder for a penis wound," he said.
