(Scroll down for video) A woman is behind bars after hiring a gang to chop off her fiance’s penis because he dumped her just three days before their wedding was scheduled to take, police in Brazil said.

The doctor has been jailed for six years after ordering the attack on her fiance.

Myriam Priscilla Castro, 34, of Juiz de Fora, was accused of ordering the gruesome attack on Wendel Souza. With the help of her father, she hired three men to kidnap Souza and they used a knife to slice his penis.

His house was also torched and his car was wrecked. Souza’s brother, who was with him at the time of the attack, fainted after witnessing the brutal scene.

Castro initially fled from the authorities, but she was later apprehended. A defense attorney claimed that Castro maintains her innocence, and she will appeal the conviction and sentence.
