In Argentina, a lady is charged with severing her husband’s penis and concealing a knife in his eye.
The suspect, 41-year-old Florencia Amado Cattaneo, has been detained in connection with the horrible suspected murder and is being evaluated by a psychiatrist.
According to reports, the victim, Pedro Federico Zarate, had been stabbed in the eye and had his genitalia cut off when his body was discovered at the couple’s apartment in Altos de San Lorenzo.
According to her sister Patricia, Cattaneo, a psychologist, was apprehended on January 11 after escaping to her mother’s home in a cab “with bloodstains on her hands.”
Her 50-year-old husband was found dead on the bed in the apartment he shared with his wife and five-year-old boy by his sister-in-law.
He had stab wounds all over his body, including his chest, and his genitals were mutilated, according to local media reports.
Amado Cattaneo has been admitted to the psychiatric ward of a medical centre in La Plata, where she will undergo tests. If she is ruled mentally incompetent, she will not go on trial, say investigators and the Prosecutor’s Office.
Footage from the police station as Cattaneo arrived showed her being helped forward by officers with a grimace on her face, local reports said.
Pedro, 47, was a trumpet player and a music producer. He had worked at the Estacion Provincial cultural centre in La Plata since 2006. He married Amado Cattaneo in 2017.
Citing neighbours, local reports said the couple have a five-year-old son and had been together for over a decade.
