A(nother) woman who cut off her husband’s penis because she suspected that he was having an affair was sentenced to three years in prison by the Songjiang District People’s Court on Friday.
The incident occurred on May 13 last year when the man, surnamed Gu, brought a woman home while unaware that his wife, Zhang, was there. The other woman immediately fled, but Zhang had planned a grisly revenge for later that night.
When Zhang and Gu went to bed under the pretext of having sex, Zhang grabbed a pair of scissors hidden in the mattress and cut off her husband’s penis. He was rushed to the hospital but doctors were unable to reattach it.
“Without his penis, he can no longer have extramarital affairs. I’d rather have him disabled and take care of him all his life,” Zhang said during the trial. She and been married to Gu for 10 years and the two had a son together. She told the court that she had not intended to kill him.
Unfortunately, this case is not the first of its kind in the city. In February we reported that a woman in Shanghai’s Minhang district cut off her boyfriend’s penis in his sleep because she feared that he was going to break up with her.
Another woman last year cut off her husband’s livelihood with a pair of scissors as a way to “preserve” their marriage as she feared that he was going to have an affair.
The man was surprisingly forgiving of the situation: “Despite all this, I love my wife, and I think she loves me,” he’d said.
