After Deputy Robert A. McClain's wife said she was leaving him for a younger man Sunday night, he took his wife to meet the man at his Irvine apartment. An argument ensued, but it got physical. From the LA Times:

Prosecutors released chilling new details about the Sunday night attack, alleging that Deputy Robert A. McClain repeatedly punched and kicked the victims and forced them at knifepoint to undress and ordered them to engage in a sex act. The ordeal, authorities said, spanned nearly nine hours. At one point, prosecutors said, the deputy ordered his wife to castrate the 23-year-old man. She "fearfully pretended to follow his instructions" and the deputy used the knife to repeatedly slice the young man's face, according to a statement released by the Orange County district attorney's office.

The wife faked the castration but did puncture his skin in the groin area. According to the young man's father, the facial wounds to his son's face were "so badly disfigured that he was hardly recognizable," reported the Times.
