Maine Man Accused Of Being Married To 3 Women Skips Court Date

DOVER, N.H. (AP) — A Maine man facing bigamy charges faces arrest after missing a court date in New Hampshire.

Forty-three-year-old Michael Middleton is charged with bigamy. He's accused of marrying a New Hampshire woman while also being married to women in Georgia and Alabama.

The Journal Tribune in Biddeford, Maine, reports that Middleton never showed up for his arraignment on Thursday in Strafford County Superior Court in Dover, New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire wife, Alicia Grant, of Exeter, says Middleton made her feel like he cared about her, but eventually scammed her out of $20,000.

Police say he also scammed other women after marrying them. They say it's possible there were other marriages that haven't been uncovered.
