A 40-year old woman was arrested this morning by the Cape Town Police Department after she tore off her husband’s genitals with her own teeth as an act of vengeance for an alleged infidelity.
During her interrogation, But De Kock confessed that she had been planning her crime since she had surprised her husband performing oral sex on her crystal meth dealer, last weekend.
She told police that she had spent many hours sharpening her teeth with a nail file over the last week, in order to make the castration easier.
She finally put her plan into action this morning and began by tying her husband’s hand and feet to their bed, pretending that it was part of a sexual game.
In an astonishing feat of jaw strength, she then cut through her husband’s genitals with her teeth, tearing his p_enis and testicles from his body. She then left him there, severely bleeding, to go in another room of the residence and smoke drugs.
The victim, 43 year old Johan Mapula was, fortunately, able to untie himself in a matter of minutes and call 10177, before he finally lost consciousness. The police and paramedics arrived a few minutes later, and rapidly arrested Ms. De Kock and transported her husband to Somerset Hospital
“When the officers arrived on the site, the victim was naked, unconscious and covered with blood,” the Cape Town police chief told reporters. “The accused was sitting on a couch, smoking crystal meth with her face and clothes full of blood. She immediately confessed to castrating her husband, screaming “I bit his dick off!” over and over again, and bragging about her crime.”
Byt De Kock will now face charges of first-degree domestic assault and attempted manslaughter, as well as possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
However, she will have to undergo a complete psychiatric evaluation before her trial can begin.
Her husband what put in an artificial coma and remains in a “critical condition”, but the doctors watching him no longer fear for his life.
He will remain hospitalized for at least a week, but the damage done to his genitals is permanent and will necessitate some serious reconstructive surgery.
