An elderly Palm Springs woman is headed to trial, accused of attempting to cut off her husband's penis with scissors during oral sex.70-year-old Virginia Valdez was arrested in December 2011 following the incident, and "arrested on suspicion of mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon and spousal abuse," according to the Huffington Post.

Friday, during a preliminary hearing, Valdez was ordered to stand trial based on what the judge deemed adequate evidence. She faces "one count each of inflicting corporal injury on a spouse and assault with a deadly weapon," reports CBS2.

Valdez and her husband, 62, were engaged in oral sex at their home on December 3, when Valdez declared she had to go brush her teeth. Instead of a minty-fresh mouth, she returned with a pair of scissors and began to cut her hubby's junk.

Screaming in pain, Valdez's husband left the scene and took himself to the hospital for treatment, which included receiving four stitches in his groin area.

Valdez was released on bail, but has been barred from having contact with her husband (and, of course, his penis). If convicted, Valdez could be sentenced up to nine years in prison.
