“I don’t regret cutting off his penis. It’s his punishment for being a womanizer. I am ready to face the consequences of my action,” Liezel said in Hiligaynon.

PO2 Alexis Bataga of Carles police said investigation showed that Liezel joined her husband, a construction foreman, in a drinking session evening of April 22.

When her husband became drunk, they went to their room to sleep. Moments, later, Mark came out of the room running and bloodied.

“The wife allegedly cut off her husband’s penis,” Bataga said.

Mark was brought to the hospital but physicians failed to reattach his penis to the remaining two inches of the shaft.

Liezel said she just wanted to teach him a lesson.

“I am tired of his womanizing. He got a new girlfriend lately,” Liezel said.
