KUALA PILAH - A 51-year-old wife who cut off her husband's penis while he was asleep has pleaded guilty in the Sessions Court here.

Fatimah Abdullah admitted using a shaving knife to slice off her 44-year-old Pakistani husband's manhood at their home in Batu Kikir at 1.30am on Jan 20.

Clad in purple lock-up attire, Fatimah was calm when she entered her plea before judge Sazlina Shafie.

Fatimah, who has five children from a previous marriage, had earlier told police that she did so because she could no longer endure Umar Rahman's "strange" sexual demands.

She claimed she had been tolerating it since their marriage in 2014.

Fatimah, who was not represented at the Court yesterday, was charged under Section 326 of the Penal Code for causing grievous hurt with a weapon.

Offenders can be jailed up to 20 years and fined or whipped upon conviction.

Sazlina said she would sentence the accused on Feb 22 after the victim's medical report was produced in court. The court then allowed the accused bail at RM5,000.

DPP Nabilah Mohammad Zainudin prosecuted.
