Wife stabs husband to death, cuts off his penis


A woman identified as Florencia Amado Cattaneo, has allegedly stabbed her husband to death and hacked off his penis before plunging the knife into his eyeball.

The 41-year-old suspect was arrested on Thursday, January 11, after arriving at her mother’s house “with bloodstains on her hands” after allegedly severing her horn-playing husband’s genitals in a frenzied attack, her sister told local media.

The body of victim Pedro Federico Zarate was reportedly found by his sister-in-law on the bed in the couple’s flat in Altos de San Lorenzo with a knife embedded in his eye.

He had stab wounds all over his body, including his chest, and his genitals were mutilated, according to local media reports.

The couple had been together for around a decade

Amado Cattaneo has been admitted to the psychiatric ward of a medical centre in La Plata, where she will undergo tests. If she is ruled mentally incompetent, it’s unlikely that she will face a trial, according to sources at the Prosecutor’s Office.

Pedro, 47, was a trumpet player and a music producer. He had worked at the Estacion Provincial cultural centre in La Plata since 2006.

A native of Cordoba, he married Amado Cattaneo in 2017.

Cattaneo had been employed by the General Directorate of Culture and Education of the Province of Buenos Aires since 2012.
