Elaine Cook of Skokie, IL clearly didn’t want to patch things up with her boyfriend on Valentine’s Day.
[Cook] and her 47-year-old boyfriend of 10 months got into a lover’s spat after returning home from a date on Valentine’s Day.
Cook eventually asked the unidentified man to leave, at which point Assistant State’s Attorney Eve Reilly says he put on his shoes and headed for the door.
Before leaving he made one last attempt to patch things up.
“He told her they should stop fighting and went to kiss her,” Reilly said, “and she bit off a large portion of his tongue.”
The victim took off toward the sink with Cook just behind him. After she removed his tongue from her mouth, Cook tossed it on the counter and her boyfriend stuffed it into a bag with ice. He then phoned 911.
