Victoria Frabutt was arrested at the couple’s home on Murdoch Road outside of Newport.

In court this morning, the woman sobbed when addressing the judge and held her head down during a first appearance. She is charged with malicious castration and kidnapping.

In the 911 call, Frabutt told the operator a pruner was used. The operator asked what kind of pruner. “Actually it’s good for pruning roses,” Frabutt replied.

The woman referred to James Frabutt as her soon to be ex.

911 asked her if he was seriously bleeding. “Oh no,” said Frabutt. “Like I said, I couldn’t even get enough blood to make the sign of the cross, or write sinner, or anything like that.”

On the call, the woman was evasive when asked about specific injuries. 911 asked where he was bleeding from. “That would be his favorite part of himself,” Frabutt replied.

Deputies have not said anything about a motive but in the 911 call, the woman gave some clues when 911 asked what caused his physical pain. “That would be part of the message against sinning against God and fornication,” she was heard saying on the call

Officer Wende Kerl shot and killed Danquirs Napoleon Franklin at a Burger King, police say Franklin was armed with a gun at the time of the shooting and refused to drop it when commanded to do so by police.

The body camera footage shows two officers approaching the 27-year-old outside a Burger King on March 25 after witnesses called 911 to report a man with a gun acting in a threatening manner.

The police video shows officers repeatedly yelling for Franklin, who is black, to put his gun down. He’s seen squatting by the open door of a car, facing someone in the passenger seat.

“Sir, put the gun down,” says the officer wearing the body camera. “Drop the gun!”
