Chatham-Kent man charged with bigamy
CHATHAM-KENT, Ont. - A man in southwestern Ontario is facing a bigamy charge after a woman told police he was married to not only her but also a second woman.
Police say their investigation started with a domestic-dispute call in Chatham-Kent back on Dec. 3.
They arrived to find a 33-year-old woman who told officers her husband -- who she was separated from -- had another wife on the side.
Police say the incident spurred a probe lasting nearly two months that ended with the arrest of a 42-year-old man on Thursday.
The man is charged with bigamy -- entering into a marriage when already married -- and uttering a forged document.
He is set to appear in court on Feb. 21.
