(CBS) SANTA ANA, Calif. - Catherine Kieu, a Calif. woman, has been sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for cutting off her husband's penis and then running it through a garbage disposal, according to CBS Los Angeles.

Kieu, 50, was reportedly convicted in April of torture and aggravated mayhem for the attack that took place in July 2011.

The station reports prosecutors say Kieu got into an argument with the victim at their home before she slipped sleeping spills into her husband's soup. Once he fell asleep, Kieu allegedly tied him up, then woke him and cut off his genitals with a 10-inch kitchen knife.

Kieu reportedly threw the body parts in the garbage disposal and then called 911 to tell cops the victim "deserved it," police said.

The victim, whose name has not been released, was immediately taken to the hospital and underwent surgery.

The couple was reportedly going through a divorce when the incident happened.

The report says Kieu will be eligible for parole after seven years.
