SANTA ANA, Calif. (KTLA) — An Orange County woman accused of cutting off her husband’s penis and putting it in the garbage disposal has been found guilty.

50-year-old Catherine Kieu was convicted of torture and aggravated mayhem Monday.

She was also given a sentencing enhancement for using a deadly weapon, according to a court official.

Prosecutors said Kieu spiked her 60-year-old husband’s dinner with drugs on July 11 of 2011.

Kieu then tied him to his bed with nylon ropes and cut off his penis with a 10-inch kitchen knife.

She then threw it in the garbage disposal and turned the disposal on, mutilating the organ, according to prosecutors.

Kieu was the one who called 911, and authorities say she told responding officers that her husband “deserved it.”

Her husband was treated and released from UC Irvine Medical Center, but doctors were unable to re-attach his penis.

Police say they believe Kieu was upset at her husband for filing for divorce after 16 months of marriage.

The pair was married on Dec. 29, 2009, and Kieu’s husband, identified only as Glen B, filed for divorce in May 2011.

They continued living together in a condominium complex in Garden Grove.

On the night of the alleged attack, the couple had reportedly argued over the possibility of a friends staying at their condo at a later date.

Defense attorneys accused Glen B of being a sexual fiend who forced Kieu to have sex with him.

Her attorneys also pointed out that Kieu’s mom died when she was 5-years-old and alleged Kieu had been raped when she was 6-years-old.

Kieu is facing life in prison without the possibility of parole.

She is scheduled to be sentenced June 28.
