An British man escaped jail despite admitting to secretly slipping steroids into in his wife’s food in hopes of making her fat and ugly so she would stay at home.
Dalwara Singh, who has been married to his wife for 17 years, ground the pills in a pestle and mortar before secretly adding them to the woman's, the Times of London reports.
As a result, his wife grew facial fair and broke out with skin spots. Singh’s scheme was uncovered by his 16-year-old daughter after she heard him grinding the pills in a bedroom.
“He wanted to stop her from going out for walks, because he wanted her to be at home to cook for him and look after the children,” said Caroline Bray, a prosecutor, told the Times of London.
Singh, who received a suspended jail sentence, has since moved out of his family's home and was slapped with a restraining order forbidding contact with his estranged wife.
