DOVER, N.H. (AP/WFLA) — A man last known to have lived in Maine is accused of having at least three wives in separate states.
A grand jury in New Hampshire indicted 43-year-old Michael Middleton on a bigamy charge. He’s accused of marrying a woman while knowingly being married to women in Georgia and Alabama.
The New Hampshire woman, Alicia Grant, of Exeter, tells WMTW-TV that Middleton, whom she married in 2013, made her feel like he cared about her, but eventually scammed her out of $20,000.
“He makes you feel special, he makes you feel like he actually cares about you and then he marries you, abuses you, drains your assets and leaves,” she said.
Grant said she had no idea he had other wives. She said they eventually found out about each other.
“(I’m) wife number three. Well actually, wife number four. But wife number three was able to get a divorce before me and him got married,” Grant said.
Grant said she’s been trying to track down Middleton for years to have their marriage annulled.
Middleton’s scheduled to appear in court Thursday; it’s unclear if he’ll show. No attorney was listed.
