As previously reported, Kieu allegedly used a 10-inch knife last July to cut off her husband's penis, and then threw it in the garbage disposal.

According to cops, Catherine allegedly laced his dinner with drugs, causing him to pass out. Then once he was unconscious, she tied his arms and legs to the bedposts, stripped him, and made the cut.
