They arrested a woman who cut off her husband’s penis and left the knife in his eye

Police in Argentina arrested 41-year-old Florencia Amado Cattaneo on charges that she cut off her husband’s penis and left the knife in his eye. She was sent for a psychiatric evaluation.

The body of the victim, Pedro Federico Zarate, was reportedly found in the couple’s apartment in Altos de San Lorenzo with a knife stuck in his eye and his genitals mutilated.

Cattaneo, a psychologist, was arrested on January 11 after fleeing to her mother’s home in a taxi “with blood stains on her hands”, her sister Patricia told local media.

Her 50-year-old husband’s body was found by his sister-in-law on the bed in the flat he shared with his wife and five-year-old son.

According to local media reports, he had stab wounds all over his body, including his chest, and his genitals were mutilated.

Amado Cattaneo has been admitted to the psychiatric ward of a medical center in La Plata, where she will undergo tests. If she is declared mentally unstable, she will not stand trial, investigators and prosecutors say.

Pedro was a trumpet player and music producer. Since 2006, he has worked at the Estacion Provincial Cultural Center in La Plata. A native of Córdoba, he married Amado Cattaneo in 2017.

Citing neighbors, local media reported that the couple had a five-year-old son and had been together for more than ten years.

Since 2012, Cattaneo has worked in the General Directorate of Culture and Education of the province of Buenos Aires, writes “Daily Mail”.
