The 40-year-old from Sonnino in Lazio, south-central Italy, is being charged with ‘mistreatment of the family’, local media reports.

She is due to stand trial later this year, and can face a substantial jail term, Daily mail reports.
Court papers state that her 47-year-old husband feels ‘insulted’ by the way she has neglected cleaning their house.
He claims her ‘mistreatment’ has been ongoing for two years.
The woman’s husband says he had to take her to court due to her ‘poor management of the household chores’.
According to his statement, he has been forced to ‘live in conditions with poor hygiene’.
