The Weekly Vice) - Elaine Cook, a 51-year-old Illinois woman, was jailed Friday after she allegedly bit off her boyfriend's tongue when he attempted to make amends with her with a Valentines Day kiss.
According to police, Cook and her boyfriend had returned home early Friday after celebrating Valentines Day when the couple began to argue.
At some point in the dispute, Cook ordered her boyfriend to leave the residence. After putting on his shoes, the boyfriend told Cook that he wanted to stop fighting and then leaned towards Cook to offer a make-up kiss.
That's when Cook allegedly bit off a large portion of her boyfriend's tongue.
Investigators say the victim rushed to the kitchen sink while Cook followed him with his severed tongue in her mouth. After she threw the tongue on a counter, the victim packed it into a bag of ice and called 911.
The boyfriend was rushed to Evanston Hospital where doctors were unable to reattach the severed tongue.
Cook was booked into jail and charged with aggravated domestic battery. Her bail has been set at $100,000.
