London, Sept 15: A nun in Italy proved that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned when she set her lover, a priest's house on fire when she caught him in bed with a married woman.
Sister Silvia Gomes De Sousa, 39, who claimed she had two abortions after sex with Father Carmelo Mantarro, also allegedly threatened to kill him while armed with a machete.
A Sicilian court heard the nun set fire to the home in Roccalumera, where she was a cleaner.
“I just flipped when I caught him in bed with another woman, who is married. We had been together four years,” the Sun quoted the jealous nun who also showed the court love letters from the priest, as saying.
Sister Silvia Gomes De Sousa has, however, been bailed to reappear next month on charges of arson and threats to kill.
