The Penis-Chopper Served Tainted Tofu Before Assault

We finally have a few more details about the hours before a California woman, Catherine Kieu, chopped off her husband's penis and tossed it into the garbage disposal. Some had speculated that an argument over houseguests set her off on a chopping rampage. And now, according to court papers obtained by the Los Angeles Times, there had been a "male friend staying with them, but Kieu did not want the friend to stay with them." And then this happened:

The victim said Kieu prepared tofu for dinner. "The victim remembers the food tasting 'metallic.'"

Kieu asked the victim if he wanted seconds and he said no. After dinner, the man felt tired and went to bed about 9 p.m. He awoke to find Kieu tying his right wrist, and pulling off his clothes.

He alleges she grabbed his penis and "with one swift motion, she severed it."
