A woman who suspected that her husband was cheating with the wife of their family friend took matters into her own hands by slashing off his manhood.
Thirty-two-year-old Betitta believed that her husband, Mark, was carrying out his affair at the building where he worked.
So, when the man slept off at a friend’s place after some drinks, his wife was able to find him for the sole purpose of grabbing and chopping off his penis with scissors “two inches from the base.”
Liezel Betitta, 32, was convinced that husband ‘Mark’ was having an affair with a friend’s wife at a building firm where he worked in Iloilo City, the Philippines
He woke up in agony after Liezel sliced it off.
She then fled, but was later apprehended and arrested. She told Police she did not regret what she did.
Mark went out drinking with friends after work and fell asleep at a friend’s house – before his furious wife stormed round and found him
“I don’t regret cutting off his penis. It’s his punishment for being a womaniser. I am ready to face the consequences of my actions,” she said, according to The Daily Mail.
“I am tired of his womanising. He got a new girlfriend lately.”
According to reports, the couple were always arguing, though they have three kids together and had been married for about 12 years.
The man’s friends rushed him to the nearest hospital, Jesus Colmenares Memorial Hospital in the Balasan Town district, which was several miles away as blood poured from his wound, from where he was transferred to a medical center, but surgeons were unable to reattach his penis. Physicians said that because the major nerve had already been severed there was little they could do. Tissue from the part cut off had also already died.
Mark was later transferred to the Western Visayas Medical Center in Iloilo City where surgeons attempted unsuccessfully to reattach his penis
The surgeons said there was nothing they could do since the major nerve had been severed, and tissue from the area that was cut off was dead.
The man vowed to press charges against his wife.
The incident happened in the Philippines.
