Ottawa-area man charged with polygamy

An Ottawa-area man has been charged with polygamy after Ontario Provincial Police responded to a domestic dispute.

Police responded to a home in Renfew County, west of Ottawa, last week and one man was charged with assault with a weapon, domestic mischief and polygamy.

Police said the man lived with one of two wives and said the other wife lives at a different home.

Renfew OPP spokeswoman Const. Janice Sawbridge said no other details could be released, including the name, age or address of the accused, because it is a domestic case.
