ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - She's accused of having three husbands at the same time, but her attorney tells WAVE 3 News that the case should be cleared in less than a month.

The Commonwealth Attorney's Office claims 39-year-old Angela Christensen is married to men in two other states, as well as man in a recent marriage in Kentucky.

"I think my client has been hounded. I think it's a vendetta, I don't think the proper investigation has been done," said Defense Attorney Robert Bishop.

He says a document was just signed after her arrest, ordering a marital records office in New York to verify her marital status there.

"We will, at the appropriate time, provide documentation of a decree of dissolution of one marriage and the decree of annulment of the other marriage, both prior to the present marriage with Mr. Ferguson," Bishop said.

Christensen appeared for her arraignment Friday morning and is free on bond. Her attorney wouldn't allow her to talk to WAVE 3 News.

Officials say her marital status came into question when she married a man in Hardin County last month while they claim she was also married to men in Texas and New York.

Despite that, her attorney expects the case to wrap up at the next court date on September 12.

"Continuation past production of these documents would only damage the Commonwealth," Bishop said.
