Wis. Woman Jailed For Biting Off Husband’s Tongue

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin woman is accused of biting off her husband’s tongue as he was giving her a good night kiss.

Sheboygan police say the man in his late 70s called authorities about 11 p.m. Monday, but was having trouble speaking. An ambulance was dispatched to the house.

Sgt. Terry Meyer says the husband and wife were singing Christmas carols when paramedics arrived. Meyer says the woman, in her late 50s, threw a coffee cup at them.

The man was taken to a Sheboygan hospital and then transferred to Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital in the Milwaukee area where he was to have his tongue reattached. Police say the man didn’t want his wife arrested. But, she was taken into custody on possible charges of mayhem and domestic violence.

    What an awful situation. Clearly he must be taking care of her for whatever issue she has. Now he is in the hospital and who can say if she should be alone. He’s worried about her and worried now that others have found out. Once you get the social services people in your lives, things change. I’m not saying he should be caring for her but he loves her.
