A woman has been convicted of biting off her ex-boyfriend’s testicle after he turned down her offer of a threesome.
Nunzia Del Viscio, 43, was ordered to stay in her home between 10pm and 6am for six months, and to pay her victim £500 in compensation for the attack.
Police officers and paramedics rushed to the scene on the night of May 23 last year after receiving a 999 call. When they arrived, they found Del Viscio outside the flat with blood on her teeth and face.
At her trial at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, she claimed she was acting in self-defence when she ripped off 44-year-old Marcello Palma’s testicle with her teeth.
