John Wayne Bobbitt, 26, and his Ecuadorian wife, Lorena, 24, were married in 1989. Four years later she said they had financial troubles, he stole and spent her earnings, that John had extramarital affairs and that he abused her both emotionally and physically. On June 23, 1993, John came home to their Manassas, Va., apartment drunk. Lorena claimed he forced her to have sex. She got an eight-inch carving knife in the kitchen, went back to the bedroom and cut off roughly half of his penis. She left him bleeding profusely and took off in the car. While driving she realized she was still holding the penis and threw it out of the window. She did call 911 though to take him to the hospital. He was taken to the hospital and the Virginia police recovered his penis after Lorena told them where to look. Physicians reattached it in a nine and a half hour surgery and incredibly it did work again. There were two trials which followed, his and hers. Both are covered here.
