A woman from Carles town, Iloilo, who cut off her unfaithful husband’s penis with scissors has said she has “no regrets”.
Mark Betita, aged 33, had just gone to bed for the night when his wife, Liezel, exacted her bloody revenge at 10.30pm on Saturday, April 22.
She is now in custody at the local police station and facing charges for mutilating her husband.
However, she shows no remorse. “I don’t regret cutting off his penis. It’s his punishment for being a womaniser,” she said. “I am ready to face the consequences of my action.”
Alexis Bataga of Carles police said the suspect had joined her husband, a construction foreman, in a drinking session earlier on the fateful evening.
When her husband became drunk, they went to their room to sleep. Just moments later, however, the victim came running out of the room bleeding heavily.
“The wife allegedly cut off her husband’s penis,” Mr Bataga said.
The victim was taken to hospital but physicians failed to reattach his penis to the remaining two inches of the shaft.
His wife said she just wanted to teach him a lesson. “I am tired of his womanising. He got a new girlfriend lately,” she said.
The victim denied his wife’s claims and said he would file a case against her.
Last year, we reported on another penis cutting crime, when a jealous husband attacked his wife’s lover after finding them in bed together. Read more here.
