A woman allegedly cut her boyfriend’s genitals after stabbing him and his friend to death in a frantic knife attack.
Jasmine Everleigh, 44, is accused of murdering Samir Esbeck, 59, and Sarkis Abboud, 61, during the early hours of Thursday morning.
She allegedly stabbed her partner of 10 years, Samir, before cutting off his genitals, Australian news agency 7 News reported.
His body was found in an apartment in Melbourne, Australia.
His friend Sarkis was also stabbed and died on his way to the hospital.
Everleigh was later arrested on a nearby tram. She received medical treatment for cuts on her arm.
On Friday, police charged her with two counts of murder.
Sarkis’ daughter Christine has released a moving tribute to her late father.
“No one deserves this kind of pain left with them,” she wrote on Facebook.
“My father was my hero, a loving husband and brother to his family.
“My heart is empty knowing I’ll never see you again… Dad, I love you.”
Police officers reported that Everleigh had left a trail of blood along several roads and a children’s playground before his arrest.
Authorities believe Eveleigh and Samir lived together in an apartment.
