Albert Lea, MN (KROC AM News) - An Albert Lea man is facing prosecution for a rare crime - bigamy.

The felony charge of being married to two women at the same time was recently filed in Freeborn County Court against 38-year-old Quinten Amos.

According to the criminal complaint, a detective discovered in July that Amos was married to a woman in Hennepin County several years ago. The marriage certificate was signed by a Justice of the Peace on May 16, 2009.

The detective did some checking and discovered Amos was married a second time to a Mower County woman on Valentine’s Day 2016 at Albert Lea Vineyard Church. His first wife told the investigator they started online divorce proceedings but “they were never completed.”

Amos has been ordered to make his first court appearance later this month.
