LAON - A 64-year-old Frenchwoman has been handed a 12-year jail sentence for castrating her partner while he was unconscious and then blaming her pet dog, officials said Thursday.
The victim, aged 39, was rushed to hospital in northern France in June 2005 with his penis sliced off.
His partner called the ambulance herself, saying the dog had bitten off and eaten his genitals.
Knocked out after taking a cocktail of alcohol and medicine, the man had no recollection of the incident. Seriously traumatised, he is currently in a psychiatric hospital.
Police never recovered either a weapon or the missing body part.
