According to the Carteret County Sheriff’s Office, officers responded to a Newport residence a little after 4 a.m. Tuesday morning. Upon arrival, the officers found 61-year-old James Frabutt with his penis chopped off. He told police that his wife, Victoria Thomas Frabutt, tied him up and cut his private part off with a knife.
