Queens woman pours boiling water on cheating husband's crotch

From the Daily News by Kerry Burke, Alison Gendar and Bill Hutchinson:

Ina twisted act of revenge, Oyinda Ojofeitimi, 67, a registered nurse,carried out the crotch-scalding attack to ensure her spouse stoppedcheating, cops said.

"She was hurt and angry that after all thistime married, he was stepping out on her," a police source said. "Shewanted to shut down that possibility forever because he had treated herwith such contempt."

The painful wakeup call left EmmanuelOjofeitimi, also a nurse, screaming in the bedroom of the couple's homeon Milburn St. in Springfield Gardens.

"I could hear it throughthe ceiling," said a mother of two, who rents an upstairs apartment inthe feuding couple's house. "It was a physical altercation. It was thewoman screaming and him in the background."

"They took him out on a stretcher," said another neighbor, Felix Smith.

Thewoman immediately regretted the assault and called 911, cops said. Shewas treating him with cold compresses when paramedics arrived. Herhusband, 67, suffered second- and third-degree burns from his knees tohis abdomen, police said. He was being treated at the burn unit atNassau University Medical Center.

Oyinda Ojofeitimi told cops she recently had learned her husband of 20 years had been unfaithful.

Fedup and furious, she awoke at 6 a.m. and boiled a pot of water on herstove, cops said. As her husband slept, she poured the pot on hisprivates, cops said.

Arrested on assault charges, the betrayed wife, an immigrant of Grenada, was awaiting arraignment Monday night.
