A 33-year-old Brazilian woman, Deyane Cristina Rodrigues Machado, dismembered her husband’s genitals using a kitchen knife and fried it with soybean oil in a pan. It was reported that Andre had already been killed before the further heinous act. This happened after the two had a misunderstanding.
The incident, which occurred in Sao Goncalo, a Brazilian city on Friday, 11th June at around 4am, has, according to police sources, left many shocked beyond words. Reports indicate that this was just after they had gotten home from a bar where the couple were enjoying each other’s company while having a snack.
She was later apprehended by the police after Andre’s badly mutilated lifeless body was discovered by their neighbours and the knife was seized. Police sources revealed that the two had argued several times about divorce.
It’s said that the two had stayed together in the past 10 years, separated for two years but could still be together (on and off relationships). They even have two children, an eight-year-old son, and a daughter, five.
Andre’s sister, Adriana Santos, told the media that the suspect was revenging since the husband had cheated on her. However, Machado’s lawyer, Carli Policarpo, claimed that the culprit was acting out of self-defence since Andre had threatened to finish her off after she told him they ought to move on.
“He did not accept the end of the relationship and said if she could not be with him, she couldn’t be with anyone,” lawyer told.
