Georgia man charged in Alabama with bigamy

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - A 34-year-old man from Georgia has been arrested on a bigamy charge in Alabama.

Henry Country Sheriff William Maddox says Jason Elliott Mazingo was arrested this week on charges that he was simultaneously married to 2 women. One of them lives in Columbus, Ga. The other lives in Headland.

The investigation began after one of those women made a complaint to the Henry County Sheriff's Office in Alabama.

The Dothan Eagle reports that Mazingo was released from the Henry County Jail after posting $2,500 in bail.

A phone listing for Mazingo could not be located. It was unclear whether he had an attorney.
