1 min read

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A Utah woman faces bigamy and perjury charges related to her marriage in 2019.

On November 6, 2019, Matthew Lennon, the husband of Ashley Lennon, reported to the Sandy Police Department in Utah that his wife went and got married in Las Vegas despite being legally married to him, according to a report from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

According to LVMPD, Matthew says Ashley disappeared with their two daughters, ages 7 and 3, on Oct. 28. Then, a mutual friend said that they got a wedding invitation from Ashley, saying she was getting married to a Kent Curtis. Matthew said they were able to get married, and that Ashley had moved in with Curtis.

Matthew provided the following items to the police:

  • Matthew Lennon’s marriage license to Ashley Michelle Harvison
  • A copy of the marriage invite for Ashley Lennon and Kent Curtis’s wedding
  • A copy of Ashley Lennon’s Facebook account where she is using her new married name, Ashley Curtis
  • An image of Lennon’s new marriage license to Kent Curtis

Matthew cooperated according to police saying that he and Ashley were going through a divorce. When police got a hold of Ashley, she said that she was aware of the process of their divorce, but the reason why the divorce has not been processed yet was because Matthew was refusing to sign the final decree.

Ashley admitted she got remarried in Las Vegas at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel on October 5, 2019, according to the report. | Newsphere by AF themes.
