(Newser) – A New York woman went a little bit Lorena Bobbitt on her husband yesterday, allegedly pouring scalding water over his genitals as revenge for suspected cheating, the Post reports. “By the time I woke up, the skin was falling off,” says Emmanuel Ojofeitimi, who was treated for burns from his knees to his abdomen, and elsewhere. His wife, also 67, was charged with assault.

A lawyer for Oyindamola Ojofeitimi says her husband “had a history of abusing her both physically and psychologically,” but he denies cheating on her—recently, at least. As for past transgressions, “she does not know how to forgive and forget; she doesn’t let anything go,” Emmanuel Ojofeitimi says. The two, both nurses, have been married 21 years; Emmanuel says he’ll file for divorce.
