A cheating wife-from-hell who vowed to "destroy" her husband following the collapse of their 21-year marriage conjured up fake rape claims after he refused to do house work, a court has heard.
Former town councillor Sharon Taylor, 61, was married to her husband David for 21 years before they split when she admitted having an affair.
And after David moved out of their home in Malvern, Worcs., last year she still bombarded her estranged husband with abusive “non-stop” messages demanding he continue to carry out household chores.

Between March and April this year she sent him 216 messages including one branding him a “robotic Nazi”.
Taylor then went to the post office where he worked and lied to his boss, claiming he had raped her over a number of years.
She continued to hound her husband and threatened to report him to the police for rape unless he quit his job.
Taylor was found guilty of stalking and blackmail charges when she appeared at Worcester Crown Court on Monday, but avoided jail.
She wept in the dock when she was sentenced to a total of two years and three months, suspended for two years.
She was also ordered to complete 30 days rehabilitation and slapped with a restraining order, banning her from contacting her husband.
Taylor, a former Independent who was elected to Malvern Town Council, began her vile campaign against her husband last year.
Michael Aspinall, prosecuting, said Taylor sent messages asking him for money and to do domestic chores, forcing him to have to remind her the relationship was over.

He told the court: "In one month he received 216 messages.”
Taylor visited the post office where Mr Taylor worked telling a manager she was concerned about female members of staff.
She falsely claimed Mr Taylor had raped her for many years.
After the manager told her to report this to the police, Taylor replied she wouldn't as "it would hurt my political career".
Mr Aspinall said: "The next day she messaged the manager saying she wanted to retract what she had said and their separation affected her mental health.”
Messages to the victim continued after that, the mum-of-two saying in one "I want to destroy you".
Taylor also sent another message to the victim saying he had one month to retire otherwise she would tell the police.
Richard Hull, defending, said she had been going through a mental breakdown and struggled to accept the marriage was over.
The court heard the couple are now going through divorce proceedings.
