A wife cut off her violent husband's penis as he slept, because he was spending too much time playing golf, it is alleged.

Neighbours in the city of Yeosu, in South Korea, heard loud groaning as the 54-year-old was in pain.

The woman is claimed to have flushed the organ down the toilet, the MailOnline reported.

When a neighbour went into the couple's flat to investigate, he found the man lying on the floor in agony, The Jeju Weekly reports.
