Sheboygan, Wisconsin (The Weekly Vice) - Karen Lueders, 57-year-old Sheboygan woman was jailed Monday after she allegedly kissed her husband....and then bit half his tongue off!

According to Sheboygan police, William Lueders, 79, called 911 and stated that he needed assistance because his wife bit his tongue while they were kissing.

When officers arrived on the scene, Mrs. Lueders was reportedly outside the residence wearing bloody clothing and singing Christmas carols. She was carrying around a New Year's horn, which she blew in a deputy's ear. She also threw a cup of coffee at the officers.

Investigators say when emergency responders entered the residence, Mr. Lueders was in a bedroom, holding gauze to his mouth. Paramedics stated that half his tongue had been bitten off.

Officers questioned Mr. Lueders, and by nodding the answers, he told them that his wife was responsible. She also admitted to police that she had injured her husband.

Officers recovered half of the man's tongue at the scene and he was transported to Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital in Wauwatosa, where doctors attempted to re-attach it. He was reported to be in satisfactory condition, but it is unknown if the procedure was successful.

In a written statement, Mr. Lueders stated that his wife's behavior had recently become odd, and that she was doing things like speaking fast and about spiritual things. He stated that his wife was on the toilet, when he went into the bathroom to give her a kiss and she suddenly grabbed his genitals and bit his tongue.

Mrs. Lueders was booked into jail and charged with felony mayhem and domestic violence with the intent to cause disfigurement. She is being held on a $5,000 cash bond. It was also ordered that she undergo a mental evaluation. She is facing up to 40 years in prison, if convicted.

Police say the couple does not have a history of domestic trouble.
