Woman cuts off husband's penis; he kills her

Kassel (Germany) - A Ghanaian man stabbed his wife to death after she cut off his penis with a breadknife, police in the central German city of Kessel said.

The 50-year-old woman died of her injuries in hospital after her husband, a 37-year-old man of Ghanaian origin, stabbed her during a domestic dispute on Wednesday.

The woman had previously sliced off her husband's penis during the fight.

Police said surgeons sewed the severed organ back on after the man was detained and taken to hospital. His condition was not known.


Police said the couple had been separated since the beginning of this month. The fight broke out when the wife paid a visit to the husband at his home.

Neighbours who witnessed the row alerted the police and emergency services. -
