Melbourne, Feb 11 (ANI): A Chinese woman apparently added sleeping tablets into her former partner's dinner and waited for him to fall asleep before tying his hands and feet and cutting off his penis.
The man died in Royal North Shore Hospital from his injuries, including stab wounds to his jaw and leg, reports the Courier Mail.
Police said Xian Peng had returned from China for a visit and was at the home of his former partner Jian Chen in North Ryde.
Police allege Chen served her de facto soup laced with sleeping tablets.
Peng then fell asleep on the couch where he was tied up before allegedly being stabbed a number of times and his penis severed.
The 48-year-old woman has been charged with grievous bodily harm with intent to murder.
Chen, who owns a 1-million-dollar home without any mortgage, appeared before Ryde Local Court on Wednesday and was refused bail.
She moved into the double-storey brick house about 12 years ago and opened a seafood import business, Ocean Meats Australia, in July 2009. (ANI)
