In a murder most foul, a 33 year old woman killed her husband of 10 years before cutting his penis off and frying it in soybean oil.
Dayane Cristina Rodrigues Machado was arrested by Brazilian police in Sao Goncalo on Monday June 7th following the discovery of her partner Andre.
Police were called to Cristina and Andre’s matrimonial home in the neighborhood of Santa Catarina and found the victim’s lifeless body naked and mutilated inside the house.
Cristina allegedly murdered her husband at around 4 am before she cut off his penis and cooked it in soybean oil in a frying pan.
Police found the murder weapon in the house, they believe the suspect used a kitchen knife to stab her husband multiple times before she dismembered his genitals.
Cristina didn’t even try to flee or tamper with the scene of crime. She was arrested in her house and has since been charged with murder and corpse desecration.
The couple had a nice time together before the murder. Neighbors say they went out to a snack bar on the night of the crime and a row ensued.
The victim’s sister Adriana Santos told media outlets that Cristina killed her brother in revenge for him cheating on her.
According to news site UOL which quoted Cristina’s lawyer Carla Policarpo, Andre apparently threatened the suspect and she killed him in self-defence.
“He did not accept the end of the relationship and said that if she could not be with him, she could not be with anyone,” said the lawyer.
Relatives also confirmed that Cristina and Andre had a very violent marriage. They said the two regularly fought and that the wife had even reported her husband to the police on one occasion.
The couple had been together for 10 years. They had been separated for two years, but still continued to see each other on and off.
Andre and Cristina shared two children together. They have an 8-year-old son and a 5-year-old daughter, and they ran a pizzeria together.
