A SOCCER mad husband slashed his wife and two children’s throats before going to a bar to watch a World Cup match.

Carlo Lissi has been charged with triple murder after his wife and two children were found in the family home near Milan.

He stabbed his 38-year-old wife Carlo on the couch while she was watching TV, before stabbing his two daughters (aged five and 20 months) while they slept.

He then headed to a bar after the alleged killings to watch Italy’s World Cup match against England.

Investigators believe he tossed the knife used in the murders down a drain on his way to the bar.

Lissi then returned home at around 2am, and officers believe he feigned shock at finding the bodies.

After several hours of questioning he eventually admitted to police that he carried out the murders.

He told them that he was in love with someone else, and that he was hoping the World Cup match would provide him with an alibi for the killings.
