First fallout from Casey Anthony verdict (revised)

Westminster - Prosecutors say an argument over houseguests led a woman in Southern California to cut off her estranged husband's penis and put it down a garbage disposal.

Catherine Kieu, aged 48, was charged on Wednesday with torture in a case that has garnered international attention and could land her behind bars for life.

Now we're beginning to see the effects of the Casey Anthony verdict. In this case, the victim should be given an overdose of heroin, and the woman should get a life sentence.

Revision: Decided that sentence being considered by court is best, and that my ill-considered proposed punishment would not guarantee that she paid for her crime.
