North Carolina Woman, 56, Jailed After "Malicious Castration" Knife Attack On Husband

9/11 UPDATE: During a court hearing today, a judge increased Frabutt’s bond from $100,000 to $500,000 after prosecutors argued that she is a flight risk. An arrest warrant alleges that Frabutt “did with malice castrate, cut off, maim and disfigure a privy member, the PENIS” of her husband James.

A North Carolina woman completely severed her husband’s penis early today in a knife attack that landed her behind bars on malicious castration and kidnapping charges.

According to the victim, Victoria Frabutt, 56, “tied him up and pulled out a knife” around 4 AM in the couple’s residence in Newport, a town in Carteret County. She then cut off her husband’s penis, reported cops, who said that “the motive for the castration is still unclear.”

Carteret County Sheriff’s Office deputies responding to the home were “able to recover the body part where it was immediately put on ice and transported to medical personnel.” The 61-year-old victim was transported to a nearby hospital and “his condition at this time is unknown,” cops reported.

Pictured above, Frabutt was booked into the county jail on a pair of felony charges: malicious castration and kidnapping. The latter count is a result of Frabutt allegedly restraining her husband and not allowing him to leave the home.

Frabutt is being held in lieu of $100,000 bond in advance of an initial court appearance scheduled for tomorrow.
