Dayane Cristina Rodrigues Machado Brazilian wife cuts off husband penis & cooks it in frying pan after bad break up in city of Sao Goncalo.
A woman in Brazil has been arrested on suspicion of killing her husband before cutting his penis off and cooking the man’s organ in a frying pan.
Dayane Cristina Rodrigues Machado, 33, was arrested in the Brazilian city of Sao Goncalo – across the Guanabara Bay from Rio de Janeiro – on of June 7.
Officers were called to the couple’s house in the neighbourhood of Santa Catarina and found the victim’s lifeless, naked and mutilated body inside.
He was identified only by his first name, Andre according to local reports.
According to officers, his wife had cut off the man’s penis and cooked it in soybean oil in a frying pan.
Suspect claims self defense
They believe the crime took place at around 4 am after the couple had argued about splitting up.
The cops seized a kitchen knife from the scene believed to be the one she used to kill her husband with and subsequently dismember him.
Machado, who was arrested, has been charged with murder and corpse desecration.
The dailymail reported the couple had been together for 10 years and had been separated for two years, but still continued to see each other on and off.
They have an eight-year-old son and a five-year-old daughter, and they ran a pizzeria together. It is not clear if the children were present at the time of the crime.
According to news site UOL, the couple went out to a snack bar on the night of the crime only to become embroiled in a dispute.
Machado’s lawyer, Carla Policarpo, claimed Andre threatened the estranged wife who in ‘self-defence,’ killed the man.
Emasculated her victim
Andre’s sister, Adriana Santos, however, says the suspect killed her brother in revenge for him cheating on her.
Relatives said that the couple constantly fought, and Machado had even reported her husband to the police on one occasion.
According to her lawyer: ‘He did not accept the end of the relationship and said that if she could not be with him, she could not be with anyone.’
The lawyer, Policarpo, says her client is remorseful, with local news reports saying she turned herself in to the police.
Some sources have given the suspect’s name as Dayana instead of Dayane, and it is not reported if she will undergo a mental health test.
The investigation is ongoing.
