The 40-year-old woman from the town of Sonnino has been charged with "mistreatment of the family" due to what her husband describes as “poor management of the household chores”.
The charge could result in a jail sentence of up to six years.
In his statement, the husband, who is seven years his wife's senior, claimed he had been "insulted" for over two years by his wife's negligence.
According to Il Fatto Quotidiano, he said that on occasion his wife has kicked him out of their bedroom and that he has been “forced to live in conditions with poor hygiene”.
The husband also said that the food he bought ended up in the bin as his wife rarely cooked.
The trial has been fixed for October 12th this year.
