The Brazilian Police on Wednesday arrested a 33 years old woman, Dayane Cristina Rodrigues Machado in the Brazilian city of Sao Goncalo – across the Guanabara Bay from Rio de Janeiro.
According to officers, the woman had cut off her husband’s penis and cooked it in soybean oil in a frying pan.
Officers were called to the couple’s house in the neighbourhood of Santa Catarina and found the victim’s lifeless, naked and mutilated body inside.
He was identified only by his first name, Andre.
They believe the crime took place at around 4 am after the couple had argued about splitting up, according to reports.
The cops seized a kitchen knife from the scene believed to be the one she used to kill her husband with and subsequently dismember him.
Machado, who was arrested, has been charged with murder and corpse desecration.
According to reports, the couple were together for 10 years and had been separated for two years, but still continued to see each other on and off.
They have an eight-year-old son and a five-year-old daughter, and they ran a pizzeria together.
It is not clear if the children were present at the time of the crime.
