CARTERET COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — A North Carolina woman has been charged with malicious castration after she allegedly severed her husband’s penis.

Deputies also charged 56-year-old Victoria Frabutt, of Newport, with kidnapping.

The Carteret County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were called to the couple’s home around 4 a.m. Tuesday. 61-year-old James Frabutt reported that his wife tied him up, then pulled out a knife.
