A wife has been accused of assaulting her husband with toast and butter.

A court heard Julie Evans first poured water over her husband James when he fell asleep on the sofa after she asked him to do chores. And the row is alleged to have escalated at breakfast the next morning.

Prosecutor Theresa Perry said: “She started an argument and threw her toast at him. He left as he felt she was being petty, but she grabbed a handful of butter and smeared it on his face. He then tried to rub some of it back on her and they ended up on the floor.”

It was alleged James, who has multiple sclerosis, suffered a torn ear which needed 13 stitches.

Evans, 45, of Cinderford, Gloucestershire, who denies assault, is to go on trial at Cheltenham magistrates court in July.
