Jealous wife nearly cuts off husband's penis

A Malaysian court sentenced an Indonesian woman to prison for six months for almost severing her husband's penis out of jealousy, police said Wednesday. Umidah Setu, pleaded guilty in court Tuesday in the southern city of Johor Bahru to voluntarily causing hurt, said Che Yussof Che Ngah.

Umidah, a 47-year-old canteen operator, was arrested Sunday after her husband, who is also from Indonesia, filed a police report claiming she tried to cut off his penis with a knife, Che Yussof said.

Che Yussof said the man, whom he declined to identify, received 11 stitches after going to the hospital on his motorcycle for treatment. Che Yussof said the dispute surfaced because Umidah was jealous of another woman, but he declined to elaborate on whether the man had been having an affair. The couple have been married for 17 years and have two children, the New Straits Times newspaper said. » Article here
