The village is a commune in the Calvados department, 10 miles away from the the city of Caen and with only 250 residents.
Authorities found the mangled body of the mayor in a pool of blood at his residence where he has been living since he was elected mayor in March 2014. Police estimated the crime must have happened between late Thursday evening and early Friday morning.
The jealous boyfriend, after attacking the mayor with a knife and severing his penis, fled to a nearby field and killed himself, reports Daily Mail.
The woman involved is a local councillor who has two young daughters by her boyfriend, identified as Albert Gibot who suspect the extramarital affair because of his girlfriends frequently leaving home at night allegedly to attend meetings of the local council.
Residents described the mayor, who was elected councillor in 2001 and deputy mayor in 2008, as a friendly man who was popular with everyone, except jealous boyfriends.
