Iowa Woman Arrested For Bigamy
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --
Polk County authorities say a man learned a month after his wedding that his wife was still married to someone else.
Maxie Smith told Des Moines police that he wed Christie Lea Thomas on May 28 at the Polk County Courthouse.
Smith also told police that he'd learned a witness to the wedding knew Thomas was already married.
The 39-year-old Thomas is charged with bigamy. A public phone listing for her couldn't be found. Online court records don't list the name of Thomas' attorney.
