A Newport woman was arrested after allegedly severing her husband’s penis, according to a press release from the Carteret County Sheriff’s Office.
Carteret County deputies arrested Victoria Thomas Frabutt, 56, of Murdoch Road in Newport for “severing her husband’s penis,” according to the release. She is charged with malicious castration and kidnapping.
Deputies responded to the Frabutt’s home just before 4 a.m. Tuesday where James Frabutt, 61, reported his wife allegedly tied him up and pulled out a knife, according to the release.
“The motive for the castration is still unclear,” the sheriff’s office wrote.
Deputies were able to recover the body part and it was immediately put on ice and transported to medical personnel. James Frabutt was transported to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, according to the release, and his condition at this time is unknown.
Victoria Frabutt is being held in the Carteret County Jail under a $100,000 bond and her first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday.
