A 40-year-old man has been admitted to the hospital after his wife allegedly castrated him while he was sleeping on Monday, police in Chonburi province of Thailand said.
The Cambodian woman, who works in Thailand, reportedly attacked her husband out of jealousy after finding out he had been sleeping with multiple women, said Capt. Somkid Boonloy, an officer in charge of the case, reports Thai’s Khaosod.
“We arrested her right away in the morning. She confessed,” Somkid said. “She said she regrets what she did, and that she shouldn’t have done it. She said she did it because the man was having affairs.”
Police said they were not able to find the dismembered genital until the wife confessed where she hid it during an interrogation. However, by the time it was discovered, it was too late for doctors to operate.
Somkid said the woman has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm, which carries up to 10 years in prison.
