1994: A jury in Manassas, Virginia, acquits Lorena Bobbitt by reason of temporary insanity of maliciously wounding her husband John Wayne Bobbitt. Lorena Bobbitt said her husband had come home intoxicated on June 23, 1993, and raped her. She then got a kitchen knife, severed his penis nearly in half and threw it in a field. After she called 911, it was recovered from the field and reattached.
