(Scroll down for video) A man in court described his bad life after his wife cut off his private part, according to court proceedings in California.

The former husband of a woman accused of cutting off his private part said it was as if his life ended the night of the attack.

“I was killed that night,” the man said Wednesday, the first day of the trial of Catherine Kieu, 50.

Orange County Deputy District Attorney John Christl said in his opening speech that Kieu, angry because her husband was dating a former girlfriend, spiked his food with sleeping pills, then tied him to a bed, cut off his private part and put it in the garbage disposal.

“I’ll never have a sex life again,” the husband, who underwent a surgery that allows him to urinate said in court. Doctors were not able to reattach the cut off private part. “My mental state is improving, but it never be what it was before,” he said.
The husband said he remembered waking up tied to the bed. “Suddenly I felt a sharp pain,” he said.

“This is an extremely cruel attack and this woman should be jailed for a long time. Violence is not the way to deal with issues, also, the man was already separated from his wife, therefore, he should have been allowed to move on with his life and date other women,” Evelyn Dixon, 48, of Los Angeles, California told after learning about the cruel attack.

In his opening statement, Deputy Public Defender Frank Bittar told jurors Kieu’s traumatic childhood during the war in Vietnam caused the mental illness that should prevent her conviction on charges of aggravated assault and torture.

Prosecutors played audio in court that was captured by a voice-activated recorder Kieu was hiding in the bedroom, according to Christl. She was shouting “You deserve it” three times before the attack, on the recording.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
