An angry husband in Italy, has dragged his wife to court on a charge of negligence, claiming that by her refusal to do housework, she neglected her family.

The bizarre charge was brought before a court in Lazio this week.

The husband told the court that his 40-year-old wife does not do enough housework, causing the home to be dirty. As a result, the husband and the children have been forced to live in poor hygiene conditions for the past two years.

The 47-year-old husband also claimed that food, which could have been used, has gone to waste. He was also expelled from his own bedroom, and feels insulted by his wife.

If found guilty of negligence, she could face up to six years in prison.
