BIDDEFORD, ME. (THECOUNT) — Maine prosecutors say, New Hampshire officials will get the first chance to prosecute Biddeford man, Michael Middleton, who they claim is married to three women in multiple states.

Middleton, 43, is being held on bigamy charges in Ohio while awaiting extradition to New Hampshire, say officials.


Investigators say, Middleton was practicing polygamy by marrying a New Hampshire woman while also being married to women in Alabama and Georgia.

It is unclear if the woman were aware of Middleton’s multiple marriages.
