A jealous husband who suspected his wife was having an affair cut off her ears and severed her Achilles tendon in a revenge attack.
The Chinese man, surnamed Yang, and his wife Kan have been married for 16 years and had been living in a rented house in the village of Heiqiao, Chaoyang district, Beijing.
Yang tied his wives hands and feet with wire when she was asleep cut off her ears with a knife then severed her Achilles tendon with a pair of scissors, reports China Daily.
"He had accused me of not being loyal to him and had made me sleep on the sofa for the past few days," Kan told Beijing News.
The couple are migrant workers from Sichuan province and has two sons with he youngest one being 7-year-old.
He was living with the couple in Beijing but his father sent him back to Sichuan on Dec 15.
"He must have been considering hurting me, so he sent our son away," said Kan.
"The woman's ears have been stitched together and her condition is not life threatening,” said a nurse at Huaxin Hospital, where Kan was taken after the attack.
"Her left Achilles tendon was severed and she may need plastic surgery in the future. She is clearly distressed and has been very quiet," she added.
Yang's brother said: "I tried to persuade him to confess his crime but he turned off the phone."
