A woman who refuses to pay her husband's medical bills has been sued by the man's family in Changsha, Hunan province.

Liu Liliang's brother Liu Jiankun said his sister-in-law, Xie Xiaomao, has failed to perform her duty as a wife, for refusing to pay.

Xie argued that she's already paid between 70,000 yuan ($10,250) and 80,000 yuan for Liu Liliang to see doctors.

She no longer helps because the cancer is advanced, she said.

She sells vegetables in a local bazaar to support her two young daughters and her husband.
