Police in Panama say a wife chopped up her husband and left a bag of his limbs outside his girlfriend's house.

They say the woman from Gualaca killed her husband with a machete while he slept after he threatened to leave her.

The 35-year-old allegedly chopped her 40-year-old husband's body into 10 pieces.

She then allegedly dumped a bag of his limbs outside his girlfriend's home and left the rest of the body in their home.

She's been arrested and is undergoing psychiatric tests.

Members of her family told local newspaper Crítica a psychiatrist has treated her for violent mood swings at Mae Lewis Hospital.

The couple had two children.
