Police arrested the 33-year-old Dayane Cristina Rodrigues Machado in the Brazilian city of Sao Goncalo on Monday (June 7).
According to reports, the police were called to the couple’s house in the neighbourhood of Santa Catarina and found the victim lifeless, naked and his manhood missing.
The police seized a kitchen knife from the scene which they believe she used to kill her husband. This is the same knife with which she subsequently dismembered him.
Additionally, detectives say the crime took place at around 4 am after the couple had argued about splitting up.
Machado and her husband, identified only as Andre have been together for 10 years. The two went separate two years ago but had an on and off relationship. They have two children together; an eight-year-old son and a five-year-old daughter. The two also operated a pizzeria in their local town.
However, it’s not clear if the children were home at the time of the crime.
Authorities charged Machado with murder and corpse desecration. According to her lawyer, she is remorseful, and local news reports indicate that she turned herself in to the police.
