Pakistani man allegedly beat wife to death for making wrong meal

New York City prosecutors say a 75-year-old man beat his wife to death because she served him lentils for dinner instead of the goat he was craving.

Noor Hussein is on trial in Brooklyn for murder in the death of his 66-year-old wife, Nazar Hussein, in 2011.

Prosecutors said in opening statements Wednesday that Hussein was outraged over the prospect of eating lentils. They say he pummeled his wife until she was a "bloody mess."

Defense attorney Julie Clark admitted that Hussein beat his wife. She says he is guilty of only manslaughter because he didn't intend to kill her.

According to the New York Post, Clark said wife beating is customary in Hussein's native Pakistan.

She says Hussein believed he had the right to hit his wife.
