A Colorado woman is facing murder charges after allegedly admitting to a gruesome crime involving her lover.

According to an affidavit obtained by TooFab via the Grand Junction Police Department, 32-year-old Shenting Guo called authorities on May 14, saying she "believed her boyfriend was dead, but couldn't provide a reason why." Dispatch noted she was "hysterical" as they gave her CPR instructions.

When officers arrived, they discovered a horrifying scene. The affidavit states they saw "a bed with a large amount of blood smeared on it," an "upset" woman, and "a naked male laying on his back with his feet under the bed" who was unresponsive. Officers attempted CPR on the victim and noticed "the male's penis appeared to be cut off" and he had "apparent trauma in his genitalia." EMS also noted a "stab wound" on his leg. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

As an officer left the room to wash his hands, Guo allegedly approached him in the hotel laundry room. According to the affidavit, she told the officer "to arrest her now" and referred to the victim as her "boyfriend/fiancé/husband."

She said the victim "wouldn't let" her sleep and said she stabbed him in the leg that morning - but that’s not why she cut his penis off as she revealed in a police interview. Guo was placed in handcuffs, read her Miranda Rights, and despite requesting a lawyer, continued to make statements. Among those: "something to the effect of she killed him and she cut off his penis."

Back in the hotel room, officers discovered a knife under the bed and the victim's "severed penis in the trash can" of the bathroom. After being transported to the police station, Guo waived her right to an attorney and spoke with another detective. During that interview, she said she thought the victim "got her pregnant again" and they "argued over the issue of the child may not be his." 

She admitted to stabbing him in the leg because she was "angry" he questioned if the child was his, but claimed she "was not trying to kill him" and he "didn't appear to be in pain."

Guo then told police she went to the drug store for water, rubbing alcohol, ibuprofen, and "greens," but forgot bandages. At one point, she said the victim's "eyes went 'dull,'" he was "cold and said he may die." Regarding why she allegedly cut off his penis, she said she did it "to see if [the victim] would wake up" and even warned him beforehand, but he didn't respond.

Guo also told her father the victim "drank himself to death," but told her mother she stabbed him and cut off his genitals. She allegedly used two different knives – one for the stabbing, the other for his penis. Police say Guo and the victim shared a three-year-old child and were "in an intimate relationship" for five years. She was later charged with second-degree murder while in the heat of passion and domestic violence.

A hotel manager reported hearing shouting from the room in the early morning hours of May 14, including a man "yelling for help." When she approached the door, she "no longer heard yelling" but heard the pair talking. The manager said a male voice asked for paper towels; she didn't attempt to make further contact and eventually walked away.

Per online records, Guo is being held on $1 million bond and is scheduled to appear in court on May 22.
