Provoked- When The Husband Is The Sufferer
Two years back, in a macabre incident of marital discord, a former nurse murdered her husband after mutilating him.

The accused, Nurse JoAnn Godt pleaded guilty Monday to the indictment of murder and genital mutilation of her husband, jay Godt then aged 61. She had apparently beaten her husband to death with a baseball bat, and cut off his penis.

Mrs. Godt has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Authorities say this was not an isolated incidence of violence. Jay Godt had been a victim of habitual aggression and bodily harm, at the hands of his wife.

The two of them in spite of being divorced, lived together in a house in St. Louis's Illinois suburbs. Jay Godt worked in the mailroom at the Belleville News-Democrat printing plant.
