Husband has lived in his front yard for six months after wife kicked him to the curb

By Peter Holley

Sharafat Khan, co-owner of a million-dollar mansion in suburban Houston, has spent the past six months living in his own front yard after his wife kicked him out of the house and changed the locks.

The 69-year-old’s health is deteriorating, and neighbors in his Seabrook, Tex., community fear he’ll meet his demise on the nicely manicured lawn.

“He’s wearing the same clothing, it’s dirty,” neighbor Debbie Scoggins told NBC TV affiliate KPRC. “He has no bathroom facilities, no shoes.”

“The weather is starting to get colder,” said Laurel Stout, who lives across the street. “He’s very frail, he can’t even walk. I’m afraid he is going to die out here in his yard.”

How did it come to this? Depends on who you ask.

Khan — who claims to suffer from diabetes and high blood pressure — said a spousal argument got him unexpectedly banished from his home in the Galveston Bay community. Police told KPRC that they’ve responded to the residence for domestic disputes as many as 30 times in the past six months. It’s unclear whether all those altercations occurred after Khan ended up squatting on his front lawn.
