California woman pleads not guilty in penis slicing

WESTMINSTER, Calif. (AP) - A California woman has pleaded not guilty to cutting off her estranged husband's penis and running it through a garbage disposal.

Catherine Kieu entered the plea in Orange County Superior Court Friday to charges of torture and aggravated mayhem with sentencing enhancements for great bodily injury and use of a knife.

If convicted of all counts, she could face life in prison without parole.

She's being held on $1 million bail.

Authorities say Kieu spiked her 60-year-old husband's tofu dinner on July 11, then tied his hands and feet to the bed after he went to lie down.

Authorities say Kieu cut off his penis as he woke.

Kieu's husband had filed for divorce in May after 16 months of marriage.
