LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Catherine Kieu Becker (photo above) today was formally indicted in the garbage disposal case. Catherine Kieu Becker is accused of cutting off her husband’s * and putting it down the garbage disposal. The case evokes remembrance of the Lorena Bobbitt horror against John Wayne Bobbitt in the 1990s. The Becker terror erupted last July. But only today was Kieu formally indicted.
The husband and wife lived in a middle class condominium in the 1400 block of Flower Street in Garden Grove. The husband, 51, had reportedly told Kieu, 48, that he wanted a divorce.
The couple had married on December 29, 2009. But by summer 2010, he was ready to get out of the marriage. He filed for divorce in May 2010. But Kieu was furious.
On July 11, Kieu allegedly made her husband a tofu dinner laced with sleeping pills. After he went to bed, she tied him up, cut off his manhood, and put it down the garbage disposal. She is accused of allegedly telling her friends that “he deserved it”. She allegedly was happy after the act was committed.
UC Irvine Medical Center doctors later confirmed to news they were unable to re-attack the man’s *. Today, a Orange County grand Jury indicted Catherine Kieu. No trial date has been set. If found guilty, she faces life in prison.
