2009 01 06
ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) — An Australian woman accused of setting her husband’s genitals on fire because she thought he was having an affair has been charged with murder.
Prosecutors said 44-year-old Rajini Narayan confessed to neighbors that she set her husband on fire on Dec. 8, 2008, after she saw him hug another woman….
Full Story (Sorry, but that link no longer works. Here is another version of the article.)
F4L: The article states that Rajini Narayan doused her sleeping husband’s penis by using an alcohol-based cleaning fluid and then set it on fire. He jumped up, overturned the bottle with the cleaning fluid, thereby causing the fire to spread. So she said, but that is not quite how things went down. It eventually turned out that the “cleaning fluid” was gasoline, and that the bottle of it was a one-gallon can of gasoline.
Rajini Narayan: “I just wanted to burn his penis so it belongs to me and no one else. … I didn’t mean this to happen.”
Right, and as there will be a psychiatric evaluation that will be heard in court this week. It will without a doubt be decided that, firstly, she did not mean this to happen, and that, secondly, it was her inner demons or the devil that made her do it. Therefore, she will most likely be let off lightly.
The death of her husband? So what? He is only a man, she is the victim – even if only of her own perceptions – and the property damage does not matter much because it is covered by insurance anyway. After all, her husband’s penis was her property with which she could do what she wanted. That he died was the result of an accident caused by him. He should not have jumped up and should have taken his deserved punishment like a man, lying down. The cad, hugging another woman, how dare he! But did he? We only have her word for it.
Anyway, we soon found out the price of a man’s life in Australia. Here are links to articles that report how the case developed. According to AdelaideNow, April 13, 2011, penis-burning killer-wife Rajini Narayan walked free.
