Woman Busted For Bloody Tongue Assault

THESMOKINGGUN.COM - What kind of a woman bites off her 79-year-old husband's tongue and then poses for a mug shot flashing her pearly whites?

Meet Karen Lueders.

The 57-year-old Wisconsin woman was arrested Monday evening on a felony mayhem-domestic violence count after she allegedly bit off half of her husband Willard's tongue while kissing him, according to investigators.

Willard Lueders was transported to a hospital about 50 miles from the couple's Sheboygan home, so doctors could attempt to re-attach the tongue.

It is unclear why Karen, pictured in the above mug shot, bit off Willard's tongue. Though Willard--in written responses to police questions--said that his wife was a in "manic state" when he was attacked, and had been "talking very fast and talking about spiritual things" over the past few days.

Willard said that he had gotten up at around 11:15 PM to go to the bathroom, where his wife was sitting on the toilet. "He advised that he kissed her while she was sitting on the toilet and that she had gone into a manic state, biting off his tongue," according to a criminal complaint filed today. Willard added that his wife had also grabbed his penis.

Responding to a 911 call from Willard, police found Karen outside their home, where she was singing Christmas carols with a New Year's horn in her hand.

According to a page on the Faith Alliance Church web site, Karen Lueders is a "full-time Activity Director for the elderly" who shares "a music ministry named ‘His Harmony'" with her husband. Lueders, the church notes, "teaches good thoughts in Christ are mandatory for a life of love and service."

In April, Lueders, who has two grown daughters and five grandchildren, spoke at a women's church seminar entitled "Misfeeding Our Appetites." Lueders lectured attendees on how to "Gain understanding into what you are really hungry for, ‘retrain your brain,' and seek out what will really fill you up. Live the life God intends for you to live!"
