A jury convicted a woman in California of cutting off her husband’s penis and running it through a garbage disposal.
The 50-year-old woman could face life in prison without the possibility of parole.
In 2010, the woman and her husband had an argument at their home and she laced his soup with Ambien. When he fell asleep that night, she tied him up, then woke him and cut off his genitals with a kitchen knife.
After throwing the body parts in the garbage disposal, the woman called 911 and told police her husband “deserved it.”
The couple was going through a divorce at the time of the attack.
The woman's attorney claimed she had a “break from reality” when she committed the crime and had trouble accepting her husband’s request for a divorce.
