OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) _ An Overland Park man faces a bigamy charge after allegedly being married to two women who lived in the same apartment complex.

Authorities say 61-year-old Charles L. Clemens Jr. is charged with bigamy and other felonies.

Officials say police were called to the complex in November when the second wife went to first wife's apartment to confront Clemens and found out he was married to someone else.

Clemens was arrested this week and made his first court appearance Wednesday.

Erickson says Clemens married his first wife 22 years ago. Court records say the second marriage occurred in January 2006. Both women are in their 50s.

Clemons is also charged with using his father's Social Security card to lease one of the apartments and with stealing jewelry and money from his second wife.
