SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin woman accused of biting off her husband’s tongue has been charged with mayhem.

Fifty-seven-year-old Karen Lueders made an appearance in Sheboygan County Circuit Court Tuesday where she was ordered to have a mental health evaluation.

A criminal complaint says Lueders was singing Christmas carols outside her house Monday night when police were called. It says she blew a party horn in an officer’s ear and threw a coffee cup at police.

The complaint says 79-year-old William Lueders was found inside the house, holding gauze to his mouth. The Sheboygan Press says Lueders told police in a written statement that his wife went into a “manic state” when he kissed her while she was in the bathroom. He says his wife grabbed his genitals and bit off his tongue.

    Why is this story listed before the story of Mark Dayton becoming the next Gov. of Minnesota? Seems a little strange to me…

      Because Mark Dayton is hiding under his bed like when he closed his office.

    “He says his wife grabbed his genitals and bit off his tongue.”

    Hey, at 79, I would take what I could get.
