An Eastern Carolina woman was charged with kidnapping and malicious castration after tying up her 61-year-old husband and dismembering him, according to an NBC affiliate in North Carolina.
It’s not known why Victoria Frabutt allegedly assaulted her husband James around 4 a.m, Major Jason Wank said Tuesday. According to Carteret County deputies, James was transported to Greenville, North Carolina’s Vidant Medical Center, and his amputated penis was put on ice.
The alleged culprit is set to appear in court Wednesday. Her bond was set at $100,000.
The Frabutt’s story bears some semblance to the infamous saga of John and Lorraine Bobbitt, which made headlines 25 years ago after Lorena cut off her husband’s penis while he slept.
Lorena alleged she mutilated her husband because he had sexually abused her, which he denied. Police officers recovered John’s severed penis, placed it on ice and rushed it to the hospital where the victim was being treated.
The organ was successfully reattached and John went on to enjoy a short career as an adult film actor. He was acquitted of abusing Lorena and she was found not guilty of castrating him on the grounds of temporary insanity.
